Buy Araucaria araucana monkey puzzle: One of the oldest trees around

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of Growth: slow
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The branches of this distinctive coniferous tree form in whorls around the main stem, clothed in sharply pointed, bright green leaves, which mature to a deeper green as they age. With its structural and eye-catching silhouette, this handsome evergreen looks great when planted as a focal point. It is a slow grower, but if you are planning for the future, then give it space, as once established this monkey puzzle will grow to a height of 25m or more - and produce really large cones!

  • Garden care: No pruning is needed. Keep well watered in its first year of growth.

We have a young (2-3ft) monkey puzzle tree that we planted in our front lawn this summer. We watered it regularly, sometimes twice daily when we had the heatwave, but it has all gone brown. Will it recover? What did we do wrong?

I'm afraid it is difficult to know what has gone wrong from your description, but if the plant has gone completely brown, then it sounds as though it may have died.
