My Skimmia ‘Rubella’ shrub has not flowered so far this year. The leaves are yellowish and pale green. It is in a container outside my door since last November when I bought it. Can you please advise how i can help this plant? Any hope of a flower at this stage? Thanks…

Skimmia ‘Rubella’ has dark green leaves and red flower buds and if it has gone pale and yellow, it has either been scorched by too much light and dry conditions in the pot or its roots have rotted in too much water in the pot.
