Thanks Verdun - Definitely not dry - have trimmed off the yellow leaves today just in case there was some form of disease to try and minimise it - but seems this may be the norm ? - not really a chance of ground planting - we have made the garden all on raised beds and planters - thinking of maintenance being in our later years
Hi - Thanks for the info - water not a problem wife religiously waters all baskets planters and beds - It was re-repotted to the big planter 2 months ago ( 75% compost 25% topsoil mix ) when purchased to allow for growth and has developed well - have only fed once since purchase with liquid "One Plant Food" that I have used previously on all my other flowering plants with no problem
Not yet flowered - In big pot - approx 1m tall by .75m wide - in full sun
Some of the green / silver leaves are going yellow / brown - mainly on the lower part of the plant - any idea of problem or remedy please
Thanks Kef - May also move it onto our patio as that gets slightly more direct sun - if we are lucky enough to get any sun in the coming days
Hi Kef - Thanks for the response - are these any help
Any advice on best action ref above please to save plant - think we have overwatered as leaves going yellow - did flower partially in last month - plant in container approx 5ft high - 2ft 6"wide - south westerly facing against a fence - help !
Thanks for the info
Apologies for my ignorance - bumped up ?
I have been given 3 dianthus plants and told they were known as Pink Kisses. The plants seem to be developing well - the stems are about 10cm and just showing small buds but there are also flower heads appearing just above the soil - should these be removed or just left ?
