Hi May Ling,

It appears your Murraya may be showing signs of nutrient deficiency which is not unusual at this time of the year. You can improve its health by applying a product called Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver and Fertiliser which will certainly give your plant the necessary nutrients it needs to stimulate new growth and produce new green foliage. It might be wise too to look over the plant and make sure there are no insects present on the branches and leaves. Scale, which is a sap sucking insect can affect the health of a plant if not controlled in the early stages. Products such as PestOil will control such a pest. Keep your plant well watered, but also check to see that the soil in which it is planted is well drained. If it has been growing in this spot now for 15 years, I am sure drainage would not be a problem. With a little bit of TLC, I am sure your Murraya will do well and continue to flower for you during the summer months ahead.
