The hedge at the south end of our garden has been turning brown and dying over this Summer and ‘someone in the know’ yesterday told me that it has honey fungus. This is not good news, not good at all. It is only feet away from a very large, very old and very beautiful rhododendron (which I’ve read are susceptible to honey fungus) and is flanked by two camellias – plants that I really love.
Am I now going to lose the beautiful white camellia that lights up my garden over the dark Winter months? I do hope not.
Camellia blossom ~ new and pure white rubs shoulders with a ‘rusted’ bloom (caused by excessive rain)
