Daphne odora Aureomarginata - no leaves

I had a gift of a new Daphne plant after my old one, about 15 years old, gave up the ghost.  I planted this in about October with some fresh compost around the rootball.  The specimen I was given had quite sparse leaves on but I figured it might recover when it went into its growing season.  I have had flowers, but a few more leaves have fallen off.  They look pretty healthy though.  I still wonder whether it might recover now the flowering season is over, but is there anything I can do to help it along?  I did plant it in the same place as the previous Daphne, but there was a bit of a gap, several months before the new plant went in and as I said I did incorporate some fresh compost.

    I don't grow them @adamadamant, but I'd say it's only just settling in if it was only planted in autumn  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Could be you're right.  I'll let the flowers die off, then give it another boost of compost or seaweed extract.  Thanks Fairygirl
