    Hi Laurence, it may simply be that they're old leaves dying back. It's quite common in lots of plants as they grow.

    If you haven't replaced or refreshed any of the soil/compost it's in, it could also be short of nutrients. Not sure they're suited to containers really, unless it's a nice big one. They make quite big clumps, so you might be better finding a space in the ground for it if you can image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....


  • Thank you fairygirl...I think I will find a nice spot in the garden for it...flowers are beginning to come out...when would be the best time to move it please ? Aurence

    As it's in a pot, you can plant it anytime Laurence. The only times it's not a good idea is when ground's frozen or waterlogged. Hopefully you don't have either of those!  image
