My Skimmia which is 7 years old and about 3' high has been affected by the winter weather and most of the leaves have turned black. What do i do?
My Parents have had a rubella skimmia for several years now & this year it seems to be getting eaten by something? they have tried all the insect killers etc but all of the leaves are still all half eaten?

I purchased a couple of small skimmia plants for my patio containers and under planted with tulips and pansies. The pots, including the skimmia (which is in flower at the moment) are looking great. Very pleased with these.
