    Hi Julie, it looks like it's got sunburn, is it new and in full sun?

    PS: This is what the RHS says:

    Leaf scorch can be caused by lack of soil moisture or excessive exposure

    Wouldn't worry too much though - if you can remove the cause of the problem (regular water, or move it into a more sheltered spot) it will be fine next year.  Its just its way of telling you its not very happy !

    We did not inherit the earth from our grandparents.  We’re borrowing it from our children.

    Hi, it is new. Its in semi shade so should be ok. It does get full sun for a couple of hours over the day.

    Thanks for the comments and links- I think it is soil moisture. It was very pot bound when it arrives. I am thinking about lifting it and trying to tease the roots out a bit more, any thoughts.
