Yellowing leaves

Posted: 02/02/2016 at 07:03

It's a big plant, have had it for years. The leaves aren't dropping off,just turning yellow. As I've said, there's a lot of new growth coming. Repotted it a couple of years ago so will do it again. 

Thanks Edd.

Thanks for your advice, Philippa.

Some of the leaves on my large Dracaena house plant have started to go yellow. It lives in the lobby by the back door, so I wondered if it doesn't like the draughts of the opening door, or is it lacking something? There are a lot of new leaves growing on it, so it isn't dying. Would be grateful for any advice.

Thanks both for your advice. Will certainly take cuttings of the argyranthemums as they were quite expensive. Won't bother about the other two.

I'm sorting out my fading summer pots, and I'd like to know if I could take cuttings or even over winter a few of the plants.

The 3 I'd like advice about are the Silver Helichrysum, Argranthemum and Lysimachia [nummularia gold]. I have a semi heated greenhouse to keep them in.

Are they worth keeping?

Thank you all for answering. I'll leave them where they are and sort them out in the spring.

I have chives, mint, oregano, tarragon, thyme and rosemary.

I've got s lot of herbs in a big planter, but need to sort them out. Is it best to do this now or in the spring? I'd like to take them out and replant them, after putting some more soil in the planter.

Lemon tree

Thanks Ceres. Have cleaned all the leaves and sprayed it against aphids, so fingers crossed. Found some tiny snails as well as tiny green caterpillars.

My lemon tree lives in a big pot in the greenhouse. It has a lot of fruit and flowers, but the leaves are covered in a black sticky substance and I've found tiny green caterpillars on there. What's the best way to clean the leaves please? Just water?

It has a lot of new growth and I feed it regularly, so the plant seems happy.
