The olearia hedge which we planted 15 years doesn't appear to be growing any new leaves this spring. It was cut back in the autumn but new grow is virtually non existent. The leaves are dead and shoots appear woodly and dead. Is there any way to revive it and bring it back. It is our boundary hedge which is totally exposed to harsh conditions as it faces directly onto south beach. I fear our early harsh winter has done a lot of damage. How can we tell if there is still life in the roots or what treatment do you advise to try and revive it.
I was up to recently going to set some gold leylandii but have heard that it too got damaged by frost last winter! which is more frost hardy, laurel or gold leylandii? is it true you have to prune rather that use a hedgeg trimmers for laurel. how far apart would you set both?
My oleria and grecelinia hedging has been killed, presumably by frost. I live roughly three miles from the sea (atlantic). Should i replant this year or wait.
When would I know for sure that my escallonia hedge is dead. It looks dead but when will I know so I can plant a new hedge. Also what would be a good replacement hedge (one that can withstand the harsh winters we have had)
Our Hebe Heartbreaker is in a border and has always been beautiful. However this spring it looks leggy and unattracrtive., Could it have died in the harsh winter; can I cut it right back?
Leaves are very brown in the lower part of the tree and greener towards the top - bark also peels a lot. In the other eucalyptus tree the leaves are brown in the bottom and its leafless on top. They were both doing very well up to this year.
I had a standard Red Robin [Baby Red Robin] that did't put out new leaves and died, brought another one and now its doing the same the stems are green when scrathed, also the plant is in a pot.
I have a Red Robin hedge which gets the sun very early in the morning and up to midday. It is partly protected with my neighbour's house and is growing very well. However, the unprotected side has developed black spots and the new red leaves are falling off. Could this be the harsh weather of the previous two winters or that my neighbour has two Red Robin shrubs which are taking the goodness from the same soil, leaving mine weak and exposed to disease? The shrubs are getting very bare and I'm anxious that the leaves will not grow back.
Photograph attached to assist in identification. I will send a further picture with a close up of a portion of a branch which has an appearance of 'barnacles'
looking for your advice on a remedy which i was told about to bring back burnt griselinia hedging. the mixture is called ARMILLATOX. Can you please advise me on the best course of action to repair hedge as i have a lot of it planted around my house and its all burnt.
Griselinia hedging seems to be dying here and all around locality. Stems are a rotting brown colour. The roots seem to be healthy. Is this a disease or frost damage and is there anything we can do to revive the hedge. Varigated variety is completely destroyed
I have two variagated myrtle shrubs in the garden that have lost all their leaves (except for a little few around the base). Is this a result of the harsh winter? Can anything be done with these? Thanks
I have two eucalyptus trees, 3 years of age close to one another at the coast but with good shelter. Both doing fine until about a week/ten days ago. One is fine. The other one looks as if it had been hit by weedkiller but no weedkiller was used near it... All the leaves looking lifeless,are drooping down and will fall off soon. It doesn't have any other signs or symptons I could discribe. Any ideas what might cause it.. Should I cut it back ? how far etc..
I have noticed the ivy on our back garden wall starting to go brown around the leave edges.Is it some disease.Im worried, i have never seen this before as the ivy was always very healthy.I just dont understand it.The ivy has been there for the last 15 years.It seems to be dying.
Twenty years ago I planted Oleria all around our summer house by the beach in ballyferriter co Kerry. I cut it every year to maintain as a hedge. I think all the shrubs are dead as all the leaves have fallen off. Anything I can do?
