Fatsia Japonica help!

Kelly LongKelly Long Posts: 4

Newbie gardener here looking for a little advice. I have a Fatsia Japonica in my new garden which seems to get a bit of a battering when the wind wips up and is also in full sun most of the day. He is well established but looking a tad yellow and I feel a little sorry for him. 

I do have an area next to a fence with a bed in which is basically filled with beach pebbles at the mo. It is in the shade most of the day would a fatsia do better in this location? I have clay soil. I have tried loading up pictures but on my Android phone and struggling to find a way to do this. 

Thank you in advance for reading :-)

    I grow a Fatsia, in almost full shade, and it has done very well, for at lest 10 years.

    Consequences, altered cases
    Broken noses, altered faces
    My ego altered, altered egos
    Wherever I go, so does me go

    I planted one in the shadow of a conifer beside a pond many years ago, it was never really happy until the pond sprung a small leak, now flourishing.

    I know in the past the planting in the garden was very shady the last owners did no gardening and everything was overgrown. So i think with me cutting back amd removing it has exposed him a little. Are they easy to.move do you know? If not I suppose I could remove my exsiting one and plant a new one in the shade!
