my strawberry bush was ordered last year and looked lovely until recently

when most of the bottom leaves turned yellow and fell off. it is not in eracaceous soil, the yellow leaves have marks on them.

should i replant  or what would i treat it  with

    My guess is that it's feet are too wet but that it will probably recover next year as long as we don't get another year as wet as this one. image

    thank you so much. i watered it same time as all my other plants/shrubs

    when it was dry weather. will ease off now on the watering. thanks again


  • I have medium sized tree in my new garden it drops yellow spotty leaves all the time , it's what it does ! such a pretty tree though I will put up with mowing leaves up regularly. [ I think it's because it's evergreen that it loses leaves all year round ]
