Leaves are burned, brown and crunchy
Crunchy leaves are generally a sign that a plant isn’t getting enough moisture. Hot, dry, windy days are often the cause. New plants, especially, will react this way when going from a garden center where they are watered one or more times a day to a garden where they are watered less frequently. Until established, new plants in the landscape need extra water. Our First Editions planting and care guide is a great resource for getting trees, shrubs, and perennials off to a good start and keeping them healthy.
