What do you know about problems with Acacia Cognata

I have two Acacia Cognata plants, both about 40 cm high and very healthy. They're in good friable soil and receive plenty of sunshine. I live in the Blue Mountains, NSW. We have experience a massive amount of non-stop heavy rain over the past past 2 weeks, only clearing up a couple of days ago. Yesterday, I found that both plants have lost most of their green foliage and have turned brown. I've scraped the fine stems and they are still green inside - what should I do, should I trim them back, or...?

Hi Janine,

Acacia cognata is notorious for turning up its toes after a lot of rain. Trimming wont help at this point. I suggest improving soil by digging in some Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser, which is a manure based, certified organic fertiliser, and will provide all the nutrients (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus) for your plants need to grow and thrive.
