Morning All,

Went a bit mad down the garden centres recently but garden is beginning to take shape now. However, one standard I bought is beginning to drop its leaves and looking a bit sorry for itself (Solanum White Charles) I'm keeping to the instructions on the label, any ideas??



Need more info - how long have you had it? Is it in a pot or the ground? If in a pot, is it the same pot you bought it in? Is it in full sun or shade, or a mix of the two?

I repotted to a bigger pot as per there instructions, only bought 2 week ago, and gets the sun from about 3pm onwards. Moved it yesterday so in sun all day to see whether thats makes a difference. Also put broken bits in the bottom of the pot.

It might be that you caused a little damage to the roots when repotting, so if there's no signs of infestation or disease on the stems, leaves or shoots, keep it well watered and hopefully it will recover.
