Can anyone else please ? the leaves on my mock orange are turning yellow and shrivelling up !! In the spring the blossom was lovely and it was healthy ! Not sure why this should be happening any ideas please .




Soil looks very, very dry - have you watered at all? The other two shrubs don't look happy either.

I agree. Get the hosepipe out!

Many thanks to both , yes i have watered ...but perhaps not enough ! the top soil is dry but still moist about 6" down , we had those very high damaging winds a while ago which wasn't at all good for the Buddleias, along with torrential rain , fingers crossed it might recover ! thanks again .

Hi again , Hose pipe coming out now ! before it gets too 'hot' , at moment we have some cloud !

Give the soil a good soaking by leaving the hose pipe on trickle for a good few hours at the foot of each shrub.
