    That's it, really. I have had two in pots for a year, both have been very healthy and behaved beautifully, so to speak.

    Now, one - only one - has yellow leaves towards the bottom, the other is fine.

    The recent downpours have soaked this one - because of its position - though not the other one. Could this be the reason?

    Could be...but also possibly chlorosis. Skimmias like acid soil/compost. When the soggy one has dried out a bit, give them a liquid ericaceous feed or a dose of sequestrene.
