Our Coprosma in the courtyard have not wintered well due to all the rain, I live in North West Auckland. They grew very bushy (so not a lot of light could get through) and tall and then lots of leaves fell off so some of the trees were nearly bare. I noticed the leaves were going yellow and had black spots. I have now trimmed them down and cut off lots of branches. Do you know what the problem with the leaves is and is there hope for these. How do we care for these trees?

Hi Claire, Unfortunately it might have been too early to do the pruning, ideally you would have waited till October(especially the way the weather is!) They will always look a bit sad during the late winter months due to like you say excess water, there is very little you can do about this, they should come away again. So fingers crossed that they will do so, once you see some new growth apply a slow release fertiliser like Novatec to boost this growth. You can trim them at any time of the year (except winter) to keep them at a manageable height.

Thanks the Palmers Team
