Osmanthus Fragrance black tips

lhy1031September 11, 2006

I bought a three gallon Osmanthus Fragrance plant, the leaves were green when I planted it, but soon after each and every leaf turned black/brown at the tip, some dropped off. Some new shoots developed, but they are also black and dry at the tip even at a very tender stage.

I searched on the web, but could not find what I'm doing wrong, or what kind of product I can buy to use on the plant so that the leaves are green again.

Ah.....Osmanthus's dreaded leave tip.....;-]. Plant requires optimum growing conditions including ideal location, proper watering management,
healthy soil and good drainage. This is one tough plant and it will often insult even the green thumb gardener.

Possibly too much of fertilizer.
