My lilly pillies were left in the pot too long and most of the leaves have fallen off and the tree is dying.

I have planted them into a large planter in premium potting mix and given them some manure and seasol. I am wondering if I need to prune back the dead branches or anything to help revive it or will it revive itself?

Answer: Hi Shannon,

Thank you for contacting us.

Ideally the plant should revive itself, but it would be better to remove the dead branches to avoid any spread of diseases. We would also suggest to water it well to ensure the soil remains moist and with warmer weather on its way there should be new growth.

Hope this information is helpful, if you have further queries do let us know.

Kind regards,

Eric
