14. Sarcoccocca Confusa

14. Sarcoccocca Confusa (Sarcococca confusa (Christmas box))

A must for every sensory garden and flower arranger. The white flowers fill the garden with perfume and frequently take visitors by surprise as they are so insignificant. I was advised to keep them hemmed in hence the pot which is buried in the ground.The plant is needing fed note the yellowing leaves. I might split it as I have a queue waiting on cuttings which did not take. Photograph 18.3.10

Mine was in a pot until recently. It was looking rather yellow - actually yellower than this -so I've planted it out now. Hope it will be ok!

I have been looking through the other members Sarcococca q's and Sarraceniac was saying if the yellowing persists give it a feed of Epsom Salts as it is probably suffering from magnesium deficiency. No quantities were specified it might be on the tin..
