How can I save my browning potted privet?
In the past couple of months a potted privet has partly turned yellow, dropped a lot of leaves and more recently some leaves have turned brown.
Having done some online research (I’m afraid I’m not much of a gardener but hoping to improve) I think perhaps it’s a drainage issue, especially with all the wet weather we’ve had recently. I have now raised the pot higher on some bigger feet since it had only about 1cm clearance previously and some compost had washed down.
Does anyone have any advice about what I should do next? Will the brown/bare parts ever leaf again? Should I prune it?
The pot is in a bright spot in front of a crumbling garden wall that needs to be fixed in coming years which will require uprooting any bedded shrubs. This is a temporary cover-up, hence the pot.
Any advice greatly appreciated!
