I have about 20 eleagnes planted in the same vicinity. About half went in in September of last year, about half early this past spring. One died early this spring in spite of all attempts to save it. Now, another in the same line is showing the same symptoms: yellowing leaves and some branches withering. I've applied green sand and some acid. The others in the line are prospering. Ideas?

Hi Clayr,
Have you checked to see if the root flare is buried on the Elaeagnus that are dying?

Yes, they're all planted about the same depth, with proper drainage.

Clay, sometimes it's difficult to say why one or two don't make it. It could be genetics, the plants were rootbound in their pots when planted and can't take up water or even the soil conditions where they are planted. The soil can be variable just a few feet away from one that is doing well. You might find this conversation insightful.

Verticillium wilt can effect them as well as canker diseases.

Any of that look familiar?

Newt, thanks. I think some of the advice there is very good; I don't have a disease or canker problem, I don't think. I did apply some acid, though, and it seems to have arrested the problem, at least temporarily.

Clay,
You're very welcome. I hope the application of some acid is helpful.

Good luck,
Newt
