Treated wood basement relationship with plants
My home was built in1982 with a wooden basement rather than cement blocks. Treated lumber, including plywood, are the construction materials. Do some plants not tolerate this situation? I have dropmore honeysuckle, clematis and hostas that are doing well with but have tried several bush-type plants that do not survive. Last year I planted two azaleas. They seemed to be doing fine then but this year are dead. I have planted several other bush-type plants in another spot near the foundation and they, too, have died. One nurseryman told me to plant rock.
