This month's tale of woe is indeed one of woe. I am sad that this plant has entered these hallowed halls of disappointment but, dear reader, there is little hope for this one. I am just not sure if I am disappointed with the plant, or with myself for letting this happen.
I give you my beautiful, my beloved, Sorbus cashmeiriana:
When I returned later to dig it up I weakened. I decided to cut it down to below the dead bit, which has left this stick that is around 12 inches tall. I think in the spring time I will probably dig up a dead stick, but I thought I would give it a chance.
Please stop laughing at the back.....
