Laurel Hedge going yellow

John King asked 10 years ago

I have a Laurel Hedge for past 5yrs, some of which have had yellowing leaves and then the plant dies off. I have only half of the plants left and am wondering will they all die? Can they be saved?They are growing on a bank at end of the garden.This happened before the snowy/frosty weather.Any help gratefully received?

This sounds like the bank is very dry with poor soil, perhaps with competition of grass and other plants too, and the laurels are just slowly failing to compete.
