murraya paniculata yellow leaves In winter

Hi there,
Over the last few weeks my murraya hedges have grown yellowish and there has been an increased amount of leaves drop observed. I gathered that during winter this could be normal considering the weather, however the same hedges in the other garden bed are still doing very well despite the lack of sun and water( my hose is too short I only use bucket for the other side)
My friend recommended magnesium for green leaves, but what about the leaves drop, is it normal? Would I need something else? Please help.

Answer: Hi Lawrence,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

There could be various reasons for the Murraya hedge to behave this way. Change in soil pH, nutrient unavailability, over watering to name a few. If you could provide more information on its fertilising and wateting schedule and send in a few photos to we would be happy to investigate further and provide an appropriate course of action.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Yates Horticulturalist
