This is a leaf from an unhappy Moroccan Broom which was planted about 4 years ago, never flowered, but grows slowly, needs a prune but this leaf problem happens each year, is it just having an autumn or is it some greater issue? I live in mild and wet south east Cornwall, near the sea, It is planted against a wall in a sunny position which is sheltered from wind. Any advice would be appreciated. Ta




Although the books call it deciduous, in my garden which is in a frost pocket, it grows as a semi-evergreen. I would say that your leaf loss is quite natural. I prune mine quite hard and it flowers well. Perhaps a regular feed with just sulphate of potash might help the flowering aspect. If the leaf discolour was due to a deficiency, then all the leaves would be affected, which isn't the case.
