I have two bronze fennels near each other. This is their fourth year.
One of them is fine and healthy, but the other has very recently started to die back.
I doesn't have any insects on it, but darker, dead patches appear on the stem and then the whole stem dies back.

I shall dig it out, but I am wary of planting another in the same spot.
What do you think?

Coud the cause be heat reflected of the white wall behind the fennel? tn
