Yellow leaves on Daphne

Posted: 12/05/2016 at 07:15

Hi there J&H ......we are all getting used to the new format ...it has pros and cons.  Hopefully some more changes coming this week which will deal with some of the latter.


I have an old well established daphne that always has yellow dropping leaves at this time of year.  They are gradually being replaced by fresh new ones.  Although it is evergreen, it changes all its leaves at about this time.  Can you see new leaves coming?  In which case it is probably just going through the same "refresh" process.  If the yellow leaves are its only leaves, and there are no signs of new, then it might be another problem - maybe give it a feed with a seaweed tonic to see if it picks up.

Morning peeps


Chicklet is coming home todayπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ. She has finished lectures and has a week to go before her exams start, so she decided to come and revise here.  Will be so lovely to have her around for a bit


Garden talk last night was great - really entertaining, and loads of tips on ways to thwart the pests and diseases - some quite surprising.  Wil be soaking my secateurs in tomato ketchup to clean them - i'll do some before and after pics for you all.  Good luck with your talk Lizzie πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€


Great slide show obelixx - what a stunning garden

Afraid it is a huge no-no, as you have guessed.  Clari is right that the leaves now are fuelling next years flower production.  Mine are normally ready to tidy at the start of June, but it might be later this year with the cold spring.
