I have some Nobilis Abies procera growing for christmas trees and for foliage etc, some areas are a little off colour 'yellowing of the inside branch' I am guessing that Nutrient levels are low in these areas.

One 'mountain' is touching the lovely beech hedge, am I right in assuming I should move that?
