Dermot Donohoe asked 6 years ago

I got 2 Pittosporum evergreen shrubs last year. They are in pots outside the front door and are very much exposed to the elements. I haven’t been watering them as they get a fair bit of rain. One of the plants in particular has started to wither – see pictures attached. Just wondering if you would recommend anything to save the plant ?

That is exposure. These were young plants and soft from the nursery, and may have gone dry at the root too.

Place them out of the wind and water just enough to keep them moist, drying slightly on the compst surface between waterings.
