Hi all!
Our Nellie is about 10 yrs. old, and has done very well up until this spring/summer...Help!?!

It has begun yellowing, losing leaves, and the still green berries are shriveling.

Our weather in the spring had been very hot, and little to no rain, and the last several weeks, our afternoon rains have picked up, but not to a flooding point.

I, at first was thinking 'stress', Shrug! ,I don't see an insect problem, so, I'm looking for other opinions??? Thank You! for looking!

Tara I can't imagine but poor Nellie sure is sick isn't she?
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Hi Ann!
Yes! She sure is in bad shape! Much worse than when I originally posted. Sad A very sudden dieback! Blinking I've taken a clipping from her this am., and I'm going to see if I can get some help in trouble shooting it. Heading out to a couple of nurseries, and maybe even the Duval Extension Serv. for help.

That sounds like a good idea Tara. I hope you find the answer.
