Hi,
My choisya's had a wonderful spring with flowers and lots of green shoots. They are potted and approx a year old however recently they had yellowing leaves whereby I added some fertiliser. I then didn't really take notice of them for a few weeks, the leaves are now very droopy and yellowing with some leaves looking crisp/pale cream?. Help!
They are in full sun west facing and we are on a roof top.

Hi, Jalilah,
How often are they getting watered. Plants in containers, particularly on roof top where it is a bit windier/breezier than on the ground, will need frequent watering in summer - possibly a deep watering every other day.

Hi Kathy,

Thank you for your help. Unfortunately the soil is damp down to 6 inches, and due to a rainy spell they have been watered every day. What do you think?

Did your Choisya survive? They could have been suffering from chlorosis. Although not common with Choisya, I have seen it before. You could try watering with sequestrated iron - it won't hurt.
