Why are the leaves of my cordyline australis turning yellow?

They are mostly in full sun. The plants are only new as we have landscped recently. New top soil, plenty of fertilizer was added & water. I live in Tasmania. Any ideas please.

Dear Brian,

It is difficult to know why the leaves of your Cordyline Australia are turning yellow. This species should thrive in most soils as long as it is well drained. Perhaps you could check that the water you are applying is draining freely from the root system and that the soil is not waterlogged. This is usually a hardy plant that once established should grow with minimum care.
