Bay tree discolouration

The edges of the leaves on m Bay ball have turned yellow. I re-potted it last summer using a mixture of multi purpose compost and some home made compost. I'm wondering what I've done wrong. Any ideas?

    If it's in a pot, with all the rain we've had the nutrients may have all washed out.

    Yes it's outside in a pot with good drainage. In the early years I used to put it in a cold greenhouse through the winter, but now that it's bigger I leave it out. It seemed to thrive last year outside even with the bad weather, and even had little flowers on for the first time. I really don't want to lose it as I've grown it from a 20p  4 inch cutting from a car boot.!
