Hi Margaret, are these newly planted plants (as in the last 6 months?). All 3 are susceptible to rotting around the trunk if they are planted too deep or have had mulch (or similar) added on top of the soil. We would suggest doing a bit of digging around the tree to get a proper look at the trunk and root system. We believe that is where the problem lies (not the top end of the plant). The Kowhai and Mock orange are susceptible to borer but you would have seen evidence of this with sawdust around the base of the plant somewhere. If the roots are rotten ensure the plants are planted a lot higher so water runs away and ensure mulch doesn’t creep up the stem. Thanks, the Palmers team
