why has my daphne started to wilt

On plant Daphne odora



You'll need to give us more information, please. How old is it? Have you moved it recently? Which one is it? Have you had a drought? Are there any signs of infestation? Answers to all those questions would help us to answer your question more helpfully, Guest.

Either join GOY, so we can have a chat about it, or post your question again - with a photo, if possible.

A wilting daphne is likely to be an ex-daphne soon, I think. Unless you've escaped rain entirely, recently, or have moved it (they don't move well, especially if the root system's been disturbed), then there's something very wrong. Phil J
