Medium_abc8bcb6-092d-4b41-8f69-18ab823cb7c9 Eucalyptus Caesia Silver Princess leafs showing sign of disease - help!

Please help I don’t want my silver princess to die! Has been growing well until the weather changed to a cold snap this April. It’s in a large free draining pot with the intention of transplanting to our property once our house is built. There are portulacas growing in the pot also. Located in Pakenham Victoria it’s positioned on our deck and shaded from Northern sunlight by other trees and receives the afternoon sunlight from the West. Thank you!

Answer: Hi Kylie,
Thank you for contacting Yates.

The brown tip of the gum leaves generally indicates watering related issue. Could you please specify how the plant has been watered? How much and how often? And also would you have a picture of the underplanting so we can check if that may affect the water intake?
Looking forward to hearing back from you:)

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
