I purchased this Dwarf willow about a month ago and it’s started dropping leaves and they’ve turned yellow? Can anyone help me stop it dying

    Salix - they need huge amounts of water, even those ones.
    It's pretty normal for them to drop leaves anyway - especially in excessively hot weather. Some shade is better for it, and that helps prevent dehydration, but it won't be happy in that wee pot for very long - they really need to be in the ground.

    If you keep it on the shady side too, that will help  :)
