Hi
I planted a wedding cake 3 years ago and it doesnt seem the be thriving. It has not grown much since planting. I was also having a closer look at it this week and some of the new leaves have brown edges, so it just doesnt seem healthy. I put some chick feed at around the base of it in the hopes that that might help.
Can anyone recommend a feed for this tree?

Regards
Paul

I noticed the same with mine today.....undoubtedly the horrible cold winds have done the damage to the leaves so it will recover from that. But not sure why growth is slow....mine is taking its time too, and I'm just waiting for it to decide to grow , sometimes that's all it takes... time !

A beautiful tree that needs shade and sunshine.
Slow growing as well.

Shade and sun?
Ours is on the south side of our garden and is quite exposed.
Is there a recommended feed for trees?
