Hi guys,

I have a Mahonia I planted about 2 months ago. It has not really developed much and now some of the leaves are turning red and yellow (see photos) and falling off. Anybody got any idea what I can do?

Thanks,

Bill

They look like older leaves. Although Mahonia is evergreen It still loses leaves at this time of year. My Myrtle plant looks really moth-eaten at the moment. It is shedding last years old leaves and the new ones are still tiny.

I'd leave it alone to settle in and make sure it has enough water (not too much) while it gets use to it's new home.

I agree with Sue it also does not like direct sunshine, its probably due to stress as it settles in. Be patient.

Newly planted trees and shrubs will spend their first year or so growing roots out in to the surrounding soil. Only when they have developed a good root system will they put on significant above-ground growth. As Greengage says, patience!
