About 8 weeks ago i planted about 180 potted laurel to replace my dead escallonia hedge. I have watered them , i think sufficiently. Now about 1 in 6/7 are turning yellow and the leaves are falling off. Some I can see are sprouting new shoots but the yellowish ones are not. do you think they are dying or dead?? if so , can you advise anything to give them the "kiss of life". My escallonia hedge thrived where they were planted prior to frost damage.
I have a well kept, healthy, 5ft high, 40yd long, 20yr old Portuguese Laurel hedge. Last autumn the leaves on one plant turned grey/silver, through the winter some branches died. That plant is now growing new silver/grey leaves. The leaves are olive greenish - like eleagnus ebbengei. But, the leaves on three more plants dotted through the row are now doing the same. 25 years ago I lost a viburnum tinus hedge to honey fungus, it was 65 yds away from the laurel hedge, the house is between the two sites. I have lost nothing since to honey fungus. If it IS silver leaf disease, what can I do a)to the olivegreenleaved plants to "cure" them and b)the green leaved plants to protect them? We look at this hedge every day through the kitchen window so its important to us!
Leaves on my griselinia hedge are curling and going yellow, then brown. Dug up some and roots are brown and dead. Others still seem ok. Is this damage from frost or could it be caused by recent strong winds? Our site is very exposed.
I need to decide on a hedge for our site I would like a good ever green one that would be able for our frosty winters.. Bearing in mind I will also have to sow this hedging on the road boundary in front of the house.. So I would like a nice hedge. have you any suggestions?
I have a hornbeam hedge abouot 6 ft tall that i set last year. Is it ok to trim at this time of the year? or is there a certain time to trim it back
I have a nice size south facing garden in surburbia but need advice on what fast growing, relatively maintenance free trees to plant along back wall to get some privacy. Blanced with the fact I don't want too much loss of light or risk of fall damage!! Evergreen probably best to ensure year round privacy.
I planted laurel hedging last october but i have noticed in the last couple of weeks the tips of the leaves have turned brown. What could be causing this? and some of the new growth have also withered and turned brown. i put 10 10 20 fertiliser on it about 6 weeks ago as i was advised by my local garden centre as the leaves were turning yellow and they believed the soil was lacking nutrients.
When is the best time to take out a mature grisilinia that has been affected by the snow and frost? how far apart should the new plants be & how should we prepare the soil in advance of the new hedge? Finally is there anything we can do to protect it against snow & frost damage?
I have a 4ft high wire fence running 10m on the boundry of my garden. I would like to screen this for more privacy. I don't want anything too wide as my garden is small and I would like it to be evergreen and have colour. I would like some height too. Do you have any suggestions. Price is a factor also. Photo inc.
Escolina hedge that is bare and shows no sign of life at all, is there any hope or point in leaving it until mid summer to give it a chance? Or should i Just cut it down now before over taken with weeds.Also on another point if Laurel was planted is it ok to cut with hedge trimmers when established ? as heard of stories about burnt leaf effect when cut instead of pruned
I have a Viburnum tinus growing in my front garden and I want to cover my front wall with it however it is growing outwards instead of side ways how do I trim it to grow the way I want?
I have a laurel hedge in place since last year,about 300 metres.Some parts of it are thriving but one side which is very open to wind is lagging well behind. I have had a wind breaker in situ since they were planted but does not seem to have worked.The wind really batters the house and even though i hate leylandi it looks like i may have to plant some along this side to break the wind.Can you recommend how to get the laurel growing and a different type of hedge that will offer quick results for my dilemna,so i can have two options.
In a very exposed site, 600m above sea level, in the roundwood area, could you recomend red robin hedging or would you suggest anything quick growing and more suitable to enclose a patio area.
Griselinia Hedge about 8 ft high and 6 feet thick 20 yds long May be killed by last winter's frost. Would like to prune sides by about 1 foot each side on off-chance that it may revive. Should I?
