Ailing star jasmine - brown leaves

Posted: 24/06/2017 at 13:17

Hmmm many thanks for your responses and it looks like I'll have to get a bigger pot. Having said that, the plant is looking a lot fresher today in the cooler weather and I've noticed the brown leaves are all old and the new growth (there is plenty) is looking how it should do so maybe it is just the old leaves which have been affected. I'll wait till the end of summer and if it is still bad I'll repot it.


Thanks again all,

Thanks very much for your response and you may well be right about needing a bigger pot. I will try and put a couple of pics up which may explain it better.


Thanks again!

Hello.

Ailing star jasmine - brown leaves

Posted: 22/06/2017 at 21:59

Hi all 


I've had a potted jasmine since last year which has grown beautifully and produced great flowers last summer. This year it has grown somewhat, but a lot of the leaves turned yellow. I've been feeding it with Tomorite (as per RHS advice) and the yellowing has stopped but now there are large brown patches on the leaves. I have been watering it regularly and evenly but don't understand why this is happening. It has a few flowers but not covered like last year.


I've fed it every 3-4 weeks for the past couple of months.


Any ideas? All advice welcome.


Many thanks

Oh Jo47 you are so organised! So much food for thought - many thanks indeed for all that, I will have a good think now but I am rather partial to "the weeping fig and spend the rest of my life fiddling with the blinds" idea........

Hi there Philippa and yes, as much as I like the idea, citrus and olives would probably be unsuitable. There are venetian blinds which filter the light and would be easy to adjust when the sun is strongest. I will look at Dracenas too and see which be happiest. Thanks for the suggestion.

Hi all

I have a lovely south facing bay window in the kitchen which is crying out for a pretty tree to soak up the all day sun. There are no radiators in there so the air is nice and fresh but it does get warm when cooking. I'm thinking about an olive or lemon but have never had a tree indoors before and obv would prefer a tree that is happy in that situ.

I haven't been on this site for aaaaages so apols if this subject has been covered before and I missed it.

Thanks all for any responses.

Favourite vegetable to grow?

Posted: 04/04/2014 at 13:26

Oooh good idea Artjak - will probably give the soil a rest from brocolli next year and will certainly think about dividing the plot in two and rotate the crops.  I like the sound of chard - or anything with a large yield.  There is little point in using such a small space for something that takes a while to grow then gets dug up once.  I want stuff that comes back and back over time to maximise the space.  Thanks for your response!
