please help!! re:dying hornbeam
I have had my hornbeam for a few months now, and it was thriving until I went away for 4 days and forgot to ask my flatmate to water it. It was out in the summer sun on all of the four days and when I came back it had completely dried out.
The leaves had turned brown and crunchy, some had fallen off. I would say only 5% of the leaves were green and healthy.
Since then I have been immersing it in water every day or every second day depending on the soil but there has been no improvement. Does anyone have any advice? ANything would be appreciated!
