Photina leaf wilt


By Pru

I have Photina Robina in a pot. It is about 8 years old and has always done well. Last year having masses of flowers etc. However, this year the new growth has been dying back. Initially have a wilt and then dropping leaves. The older part of the plant is shiny and healthy. We pruned it back about 3 months ago, but this wilt is still happening on new shoots. Can you advise please/

When was the last time you potted it on? If its been in the same size pot for the last couple of years, now that its eight years old, it may well be rootbound and cannot grow well because of it. Turn it out of the pot and check the root ball if you haven't repotted.
