cupressus goldcrest brown, dry and brittle

Question from Joanna Skrzypczynska

In forum: Trees and shrubs

My cupressus is dying :( We bought it two month ago, I moved it to the bigger pot, water it when top layer dry ( first few days everyday a little) When I noticed brown brunches I sprayed it with suitable bug killer as I though something it eating it. I'm a newbe, tried to read about it but I'm clueless what else I can do. Is that still possible to save it?
All advice very much appreciated. Thank you

ID highly scented yellow shrub

Question from JOAN

In forum: Identify a plant

Hello. I've tried everywhere inc. RHS to find an ID for what I believe must be a common garden shrub, which I want to buy more of, but it is a mystery. It has almost gone over and was flowering best in early May. It is deciduous, loosely shrubby, green leaves, almost Hawthorn-like in shape. Extremely fragrant clusters of small yellow flowers with five slim petals at the tips of the twigs that have a strong gorgeous scent all day. It doesn't look amazing, but the strong scent is beautiful, so we want more. Sited in far North East England, so very hardy. Please ID if you can. I'm not tech so have no photos to upload. Thank you.

Could you tell me what this is please

Question from Romaine

In forum: Identify a plant

Found this on a fairly steep neglected bank. Very sharp long spikes on branches and this appears at the base of a stem. Deciduous, pale green soft leaves , young stems do not have the spikes would be grateful for any help. No fragrance that I can detect.
