I recently planted alpine perennials. I used layer of ericaceous compost in the ground on advice. Hebe leaves turning brown is it due to compost? Lots of crawling black flies in soil too perhaps that’s the problem? (not common blackfly look like crawling fruit flies)

If these are planted into soil and compost they will be fine. They have probaly gone dry at the roots. The flies are nothing to do with the plants and will soon vanish.
