What do I feed my daphne please. Its leaves are going yellow.
I have broken off two very yellow Daphne leaves. It is a new plant and the first time I've had a Daphne.

Daphne can be just a bit particular when it comes to environment. I would, first, be sure that the soil has plenty of time to dry out down to about 3 or 4 inches or so between watering. Yellowing leaves will be the first sign of overwatering, with a quick downward spiral to the death of the plant.
If you are sure that the soil has plenty of time to dry out between getting a drink, then you can begin to figure out deficiency symptoms.
Feeding with an all purpose, once per year, is often enough to keep them plenty happy.
