Japanese Dwarf Barberry Dropping Leaves - Knowledgebase Question

Question by dhdemark

My barberry bushes, planted in the spring, are slowly drying up and dropping leaves - when it rains heavy or I water - other plants surrounding thrive, and they get worse. Before I replace (they are ready to die) I need to know what I did wrong! They are in full sun, use general purpose fertilizer and are mulched. HELP!

defoliating can happen as a response to chemical sprays or excess fertilizer, or even a water soluble fertilizer applied at high temperatures. Always be sure to read and follow label instructions.

I hope this helps you trouble shoot. defoliating can happen as a response to chemical sprays or excess fertilizer, or even a water soluble fertilizer applied at high temperatures. Always be sure to read and follow label instructions.
