Q.I Have A Problem With Daphne Perfume Princess

Zone NG34 8LH, Lincolnshire | Anonymous added on January 8, 2024 | Answered

My Daphne is outside in the soil and its flowering really well. There were no instructions to put it in ericaceous soil when it arrived. I have noticed that a lot of the leaves have dark brown splodges on the ends of them. I cant see any insect issues and its still flowering well, could this be because its in ordinary garden soil and what can I do to help it? Thanks
