RE: Carolina Allspice


Would you happen to remember if they got fertilized a lot?  This one is
currently situated at the top of a slope so the drainage is decent, and it's
on the western edge of a wooded strip so mostly dappled shade until late
afternoon.  Soil back there is still mostly clay but the developer didn't
quite strip it all away at the edge so it's better than most of the rest of
the property.  I added some compost when I moved the plant.  I believe the
area was farmed, most likely corn, prior to subdivision 10 years ago.  Could
there still be residual herbicides? 

I don't know if I've missed something it needs, or it just didn't like the
transplant.  I have to admit I haven't really been paying much attention to
it since I moved it.  Oops.

Kitty et al,
I'm glad you all enjoyed my tumble story.  I was grateful at the time
that I wasn't washing the boys bedroom windows at the rear of the house.

That would have been about a 20 foot tumble onto gravel !
<<Au Contrare!!!  (surely not spelled right!)>>
     Au contraire !!!

Libby, it was a mature garden, probably started in the late 40's, early
50's and the tumble took place in 1974.  The bushes were on the south
side of the house and the property sloped hard down to an old railroad
track, great drainage, and wooded at the edges.  Because of a Kentucky
Coffee Bean Tree toward the east end of the house and maples at the west
end of the house, the bushes only received direct afternoon sun and some
late morning sun but not the withering late afternoon sun.
