Anonymous added on June 30, 2011 | Answered

My buxus plant has continually yellow leaves all over. My new one has also began to get yellow leaves. The first one is quite bad. They are both potted.

There are three things that might be causing your buxus problem. Nutrient deficiency (nitrogen is the most likely culprit), lack of water (is it in a sheltered spot that might not get the rain it should?), or a fungus. If the latter, you must treat with a fungicide and clean away all those dropped leaves.
