Hi, Just wondered if anyone could help me please.  I have inherited a garden with some lovely old plants and have identified most of them.  I have identified one as a Pittosporum which is now quite large about 4 ft wide x 8 ft tall and I thought was an evergreen.  It flowers in the summer with little purple flowers with a honey scent.  However after looking at it today it appears to be shedding all of its leaves, (it did it last year too but not quite so many).  I was going to prune it back a little but now unsure really of what to do with it as I don't want to kill it.  Any advice would be most helpful I would add I have only lived in this house for 2 years so the Pittosporum is quite new to me.

Regards

Sandra

These are tough and hardy shrubs .Trim them to what size you want but not too harsh...say by up to 2 ft in ht. and width.n.b.remember plants get old like us and some will wither and die eventually.
