Oleander problemp

ProfCoolProfCool Posts: 41

I have a lovely oleander that I am particularly keen on that doesn't appear to be in the best of health this spring. Parts of it seem to be dying whilst other parts are showing new growth (see photos).  Can anyone advise what the problem might be and what the appropriate course of action should be (novice gardener here :)). Unsure whether to cut off the offending parts or whether it needs any treatment or feeding etc. Thanks

    Prof although i don't grow them personally one of my clients has a good number, potted and kept frost free over winter. Every spring there is some dieback or leaf loss. All I do is water and feed them and they quickly perk up and put on new growth. They like rain rather than tap water and sun. I see yours are in the garden so I'd cut out the dead and feed.
