Hi Stefan,

Is the Little Gem planted in a pot or in the garden bed? Sometime if the plant is in a pot with a saucer underneath it can become over-watered and the ends of the leaves can turn black. Also under-watering can also cause similar symptoms. If excessive fertiliser has been applied the leaf edges will burn.
