yellow leaves on christmas box plant

United Kingdom

Can you tell me why my christmas box plant has yellow leaves, even though it has lots of red berries (not black)

On plant Sarcococca confusa



I think its the sarcococco rusciflolia you have if the berries are red. The yellowing of leaves can be due to sudden adverse cold such as we have just recently had Its not uncommon Maureen.......

I think Milky is probably right but if the yellowing persists then feed it with epsom salts for magnesium deficiency.
