comment
ublaszko

It could be several things so I think you might need to try different things and rule them out one by one. Check the soil and see if it feels wet. They are quite prone to overwatering so you should let the soil dry out between waterings and make sure it doesn't sit in wet soil. 😊 Also is it in a large pot? They have deep roots so need a pot twice the size of the pot it came in originally to let it grow out and establish. ☺

5w
comment
kez001uk

@ublaszko to be honest I rarely water it, only in summer when it feels dry. I had one before and killed it by overwatering 😂 so I leave it alone now. It’s in a good sized pot, well drained and never standing in water. I read frost can damage the leaves this way but we haven’t hardly had any here so not sure that’s the issue either 😜

5w
comment
ublaszko

It doesn't look like frost damage and the temps would have to be -5 for a prolonged period. It's not leaf chlorosis either as it isn't showing darker leaf veins. I think it looks like nitrogen deficiency because it seems to have lighter centre similar to my hellebore earlier this year. I don't know why it would have nitrogen deficiency though. Can you see any white build up on the inside or outside of the pot?

5w
comment
kez001uk

@ublaszko you’re so knowledgeable 😜 I’ll take a look at the pot tomorrow. If it has white build up then I just need to feed it a high nitrogen plant food?

5w
comment
ublaszko

If there's white build up you'll need to rub it off and flush the soil with plenty of warm water and let it dry out before doing anything else with it. Otherwise, I'd use slow-release general purpose feed but wait until it finishes flowering and shows signs of new growth. ☺ I've had some experience with nitrogen deficiency but it could also be something unrelated. It shouldn't hurt though to give it a small dose of slow release food when it's actively growing.

5w
comment
kez001uk

@ublaszko I’ll give it some food tomorrow because I can’t even remember when I last fed it 🙈 then see about the build up and will go from there. Thank you Urszula ☺️

Annual spring feed should be enough. Check the salt build up first though. You don't want to add fertiliser on top of salt toxicity. 😅

Really? That's odd. Will see where mine's up to tomorrow when off! 👍

Probably about 50-50 flowers open now which is about 15 open I'd say. Strangely though, the overall scent from it is just the same 🤔

@jeatacake wow, I bet it looks fantastic! Mine is still no further forward. Hoping the Epsom salts kick in soon and it starts to regain some of its colour. And I checked the smell too, you really don’t notice it unless you get right up to the flowers 😕

@sherrisgarden I just took a look at the encyclopedia photos and you’re right, looks gorgeous when the flowers open 😍 can’t wait to find out how it smells either. Supposedly highly fragrant 😋

@Muzz67 oh I really can’t wait to smell it now 🤤 it’s such an unassuming looking plant but now it’s started to flower it’s really standing out. Just love it 😁

Nice 👌 My Daphne (sounds like an elderly aunt!) looks to be at the same stage. I must take a fresh look at it soon & not miss it flowering as I normally do. Meant to be very scented too, but always missed that too 🤨

@jeatacake 😂😂😂 good ol’ auntie Daph 🤣🤣🤣 does it not stay in flower for long? Mine has never bloomed before so I’m clueless 🤪

I'd best not miss mine then, as it has a few buds on it. Before it's only had the odd one.
