Got, load's of healthy fatsia of all varieties dotted around the garden, I have one that's letting the team down!, it's a bog standard fatsia that was planted last summer, it's got no leaf damage & nothing seem's to be eating it!, the colour is deep lush green but the whole plant is drooping , there's perfectly healthy photinia's either side although a few feet away I have a large magnolia grandiflora that's suffering heavy leaf loss?, I'm going to give them a bug spray tomorrow but I'm wondering now if it's purely down to soggy ground as these mentioned are quite far down the wet end of garden. Will they adapt to condition's or may need to be moved. karl.
Thank's, I realise you can't fight the water table but I'm thinking of adding something around the rootball area's to help soil dry out quicker?, any thought's....... silversand maybe or I may dig a small trench & fill with small gravel.

Move the fatsia and replace with a gunnera?
