I'd like to grow this but wondered whether it would do here.We.re in Glasgow area.

It's hard to be specific, but these plants are only half hardy, so unless you have a particularly sheltered garden, or can grow it in a pot and over-winter it in an unheated conservatory or greenhouse, then I suspect it may not survive the winter.

I have a Leptospermum scoparium which is about 1ft tall, and in a pot. It's in a semi sheltered spot (West facing) amongst other shrubs/plants but the leaves are dropping off and the plant looks like it's dying. What could be the possible causes please?

Hello, It's difficult to say from your description, but the most likely causes are either too much or too little water.
