I have now bought two Daphne Odora plants. Both are looking very sick. I bought one over a year ago, and the other at Xmas...They have lost any leaves they did have and only have greeny brown shoots that never grow. I have put one in a pot, and the other is now in the garden in the hope it improves. I feel really dispoointed that both plants have been such a failure - they are expensive to buy and I have following all growing instructions. Has this happened to anyone else....any tips????

Never had any problems with them either in the pot or in the ground. I do keep those Daphne slightly sheltered through the winter. Did you buy it growing inside and put it outside to quick without climatising it?

They have rather fleshy roots which won't regenerate if damaged, and are slightly tender. I lost mine early last year, it looked iller and iller through the previous season as well. I put loads of leaf mould and compost round it as a mulch, but it still turned its toes up.
