I have moved a Daphne 'Eternal Fragrance' from the garden where it was crowded to a substantial size pot. Well watered with the rains, but some of the leaves are yellowing what should I do now ?
It's hard to diagnose the problem as it can just be adapting to a new area or in a pot. Have you changed the soil? Make sure there are sufficient drainage holes and snip off the yellowing bits and see how it goes.
Daphne can be a bit fussy, it doesn't like being transplanted so it's most likely just the aftermath of having been moved. I wouldn't prune it just yet as it's prone to die-back so you may do more harm than good.
My advice is ensure it's not permanently wet, put it somewhere sheltered and otherwise leave it well alone until next year.
I'd been mollycoddling mine a bit (well, it was expensive!) but it didn't look happy so I read up on it.
This Daphne likes poor soil, sharp drainage and sun, so I put it in a pot with gritty compost at the base of my south facing wall and now it's happy!
Thank you all for your advice. The soil is gritty, (i only added grit to the same soil) and the pot is in a south west facing position.I did wonder if the problem was just because I had transplanted it. Yellowing leaves removed. I wondered if to move it into a sheltered place as so much rain is due over next few days to prevent it becoming too wet. Otherwise I will wait to see what happens.
