My acuba is looking worst for wear leaves all yellowing and turning brown it's about 6ft tall think it suffered a bit last winter can I cut it it back a bit ? unsure because of the slow growth and it's where it is for privacy .




At this moment in time, I would cut it back by one third to leaf axles. If the leaves start to turn from brown to black it might be phytophthora which aucuba does seem to suffer from. Anyway, after cutting back, give it a good feed and a mulch as it won't do any harm.
