    I wouldn’t be too worried if that was mine - sometimes the older leaves do get a bit discoloured, and all your fresh growth looks healthy.  Is there anyway you could get it out of a pot and into the ground?  They are quite big plants, and it would probably benefit from having room to stretch its toes 👣

    We only bought it last year from the malvern flower show  think it had been forced to flower early .
    So we put in pot as was such a young plant will pot in garden  next year but was struggling  this year and didn't  know why.
    Thanks for your advice.

    I’d put it in the ground now rather than wait  ... if you prepare a good spot for it and water it well it’ll not suffer and I’m sure it’ll start to improve very quickly 😊

    It needs putting out in the ground Paul,  that’s all that’s wrong with it.
    make sure you give it loads of water for a start as we are in a bit of a drought at the moment.
