The Q&A Archives: My leaves are getting brown

Question: my euryops pectinatus Viridis is getting brown leaves and is no longer blooming. I planted it 2 months ago with mid-day and evening sun. It had blooms when I bought it. I may be watering too much, does that sound right. I love it and don't want to kill it before I figure out what I am doing wrong.

Answer: Heather,

Either over or under watering is a problem. If you are overwatering their may also be some loss of foliage color as the green fades toward yellow. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. It does tend to bloom best in spring and early summer so if you can get it back in good health and vigor it should be nice again for you next spring. After is shows signs of new growth start to feed it with a soluble plant food such as Miracle Gro at the low label rates.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
