Sweet Box/sarcococca not doing well, but why?
I had a couple of sweet box in pots, and planted one out into my east facing, free draining, semi-shaded alkali soil, here in the SE of England. It started to lose its leaves and so I rescued it back into a pot, but I think it's too late. I planted the other one last autumn in the same garden, but in a different position, and it's starting to yellow and the leaves look a bit crinkly, so I've hoiked that out. What could be wrong? I've read that they are OK in any soil, but it seems like chlorosis. It's pretty sheltered in that garden, too. They were doing OK on my west facing patio, and none of the other plants in that garden have any problems.
