Question From: C. JenkinsLawrence - PENNSYLVANIA
Q: I planted forsythia a couple of years ago. They both about doubled in size by last year, grew leaves. However , the green leaves suddenly felling RF of both bushes and they haven’t bloomed yet this year, just bare twigs. Help!

A: I don't have a crystal ball. A late season frost may have damaged the flower buds and leaves. Pesticide drift can also damage shrubs. They may be victims of winter kill. Wish I could be more of help. Best Nancy and thanks for visiting
