    What do you mean, almost spring? Are you in the antipodes? They are fussy plants and yours would do better in the ground or a much bigger pot. Yours is likely to be stressed by what happened before you bought it, it takes time for leaves to go yellow, but generally they seem to like shade or semi shade, moist but not wet soil, that is neutral or slightly acid. I think yours needs to rest and recover for a while. Don't feed it, keep it shady and cool but not cold and fingers crossed!

    Have you got it inside?
    They're not indoor plants, other than needing a little winter protection.
    Posy's right - it's likely to be a bit of transplant stress, but it needs the right conditions to thrive. If you can't give it the conditions it needs, it's not going to do well  :/
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
