Dry jasmine

Question: A jasmine in difficulty Hi, I have a very old white jasmine (about thirty). Half of last October all the leaves dried up, suddenly. It is true that he probably suffered from the lack of water and also from the fact that October was unusually hot, but such a thing seems very strange to me, also because in the past years the jasmine remained green and continued to bloom until December.

Question: Antracnosi della Camelia I have a camellia japonica affected by anthracnose (a few weeks ago). The leaves are now pea green, opaque and are twisting. Since I only have the terrace, I wanted to avoid spraying verdigris, I bought CIFOZEB MANCOZEB FUN 3 from Cifo, but I don't know if I can spray it or if I do more damage than anything else (it indicates the disease, but on fruit trees, it doesn't mention spraying also the camellias ...).

Camellia fertilization

Question: Camellia fertilization I have on the terrace two vases of ortense (a white one and a light rose) which, despite having provided for protection, have suffered very much from the rigors of the winter just ended. One of them, in particular, has very small shoots that cannot develop. I would like to know if a fertilizer with a high concentration of nitrogen (NPK 16 - 5 - 5 + Fe), which I use for other plants and that I know promotes leaf development, can be beneficial (my doubt is due to the fact that it is a matter of acidophilic plants and therefore I know that there are specific fertilizers for these plants, with a much lower percentage of nitrogen).
