    Apologies for absence of photo of Daphne in previous post! Returning member after years away, hoping to use GC on mobile & to upload photo by following instructions in New Members Forum. Instructions don't seem to correspond to what I see on screen. How do I get the red boxes in the first place? Can't get to select a file from my phone. Don't want to keep on with useless attempts & waste members' time. Any help here please? Thanks, L.

      I think they prefer it more on the acidic side?

        Hiya lindico :)
        A sequestered iron spray may be needed but try a couple of sprays of Epsom salts (magnesium) first. Cheap and available anywhere and should help restore good green colour to the foliage.:)
