Answer: Hi Nicole,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

It’s hard for us to determine exactly what has gone wrong with your plant. Can you please provide more information regarding the plant?

How the plant has been fed and watered?
What is the aspect of the plant? Eg. Full sun, part shade
Has the soil been improved or disturbed recently?
Can you see any pests or diseases?
Are you able to attach any photos of the issue?

Once we receive this information, we will be able to provide you with the best advice on how to treat the plant moving forward.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
