I moved a skimmia(not sure what variety) early this year and the leaves are looking a little pale and "in need" what feed is best.thanks



These plants like acid soil and a good bit of shade - they grow in sun, but tend to be paler green when they do. If your soil is alkaline, try watering Sequestrene iron tonic around the base of the plant. Not a good idea to feed at this time of year, its too late.
