Though we have watered it during planting, we have been careful not to over water it since. We planted it where a pond was removed and the soil was full of compost from our bin.

Hi David,

It does sound like your Acacia cognata has received too much moisture. They love to be in a well drained spot and the plant will soon let you know when its roots are too wet. At this stage, you could apply a product called AntiRot Phosacid Systemic Fungicide. It works as a preventative as well as a curative fungicide and has the ability to boost the plants defence mechanisms giving it the ability to prevent disease taking hold. It is applied as a foliar spray and should be applied every 4 - 6 weeks until conditions improve. You may need to lessen the amount of water that you are giving the plant and ensure that the area is well drained.
