A few of my pittosporim waimea ranging from 1.2 to 1.8metres are getting brown leaves & in some cases the leaves on whole branches have gone brown thus having to remove the whole branch. On a lower bush, all the leaves went brown I didnt remove any branches & the plant died. The larger plants are in total shade & the soil is moist. The lower bushes are in full sun. Can you offer advise so I dont loose any other bushes please.

There could be a number of factors contributing to this. Generally most are quite hardy, they thrive in sun or shade. The browning can be a result from wind and cold weather, are they in an exposed spot? When they are growing they survive the first couple of years in a sheltered spot. They really don’t do well in moist soil, a well-drained site, dry area is better. I suggest a light prune, this usually helps keep the plants bushy. Check the ground for drainage, they may be getting wet feet.
