I'm not good at technical stuff, but will ask DH about a photo tomorrow. If it stops raining.

Could anything have disturbed the roots?
I've found that they absolutely will not tolerate any disturbance.

Can you put up a photo of it BBbevan?
If watering isn't reviving it, it could be something eating the roots or stem.

I think it is well established. We have been here 4 yrs and no trouble. It is about 4ft wide and 5 ft high. I have watered it a lot .

It’s been a very dry spring, if it’s still a young tree it might need more water.

My Daphne, often called Wintersweet, is looking extremely droopy. What might be the reason ?
