My Pittosporum shrubs have suddenly turn from green to yellow green & the leaves are specked with brown dots. Some dots look like a tiny brown circles. What can I do about this?

Without seeing the plant it's hard to make a diagnosis. It might be that the plant is showing damage from sunscald, from fertilizer or pesticide overspray, or that it has developed a disease. You can try pruning off the the damaged foliage to force healthy new growth. You might also take some of the affected foliage into your local Master Gardener clinic, cooperative extension office, or well staffed nursery for help with diagnosis. It may be that you'll need to apply a fungicide to your Pittosporum. I hope it recovers soon!
