Me neither. I love when you can have all the windows and the French doors wide open until bedtime, now I’m drawing them at 7.30ish. The care system breakdown must be a huge worry to those, including you, who rely on it so heavily. It’s shocking @Auricula

Can any one tell me what's wrong with my Skimmia please? It's only gone like this recently and I can't see any signs of infestationan 🤔

comment
ukjohnny

Hi Jane, the yellowing of the leaves is lime induced chlorosis caused by lime/chalk in the soil (alkaline) ..Skimmias are ericaceous (acid loving) ...the lime in soil 'locks up' iron making it unavailable to the plant..which shows up as yellowing leaves... mulch with ericaceous compost and or use sulphur as a top dressing..or feed with an acid fertiliser.. the holes in the leaves are nothing to worry about ..old leaves which have been chewed a bit👍

3w
comment
pelly

Hi John, thank you but this is in a pot of ericacious compost which has recently been top dressed. It's also had a sequestrated seaweed feed. Do you have any other ideas please? At least I haven't got to worry about the leaves now 👍 @ukjohnny

comment
ukjohnny

... a couple of more theories Jane, possibly magnesium deficiency (Epsom salts) or too much sun burning the leaves, Skimmias do best in semi shade or even full shade ... 👍🙂
