Probelms with Beech Hedge

Anthony McCoy asked 13 years ago

Gerry, last October I planted a row of Beech hedge on my sloping front garden, it is a quite exposed and windy location. The hedges took very well and there was plenty of new growth this spring early summer. However, in the past month the leaves are turning brown almost as if autumn has come early. I am thinking it is some sort of deficiency. Any suggestions?

Beech is not a partiucularly wind-resistant tree and even big mature beech trees have suffered this spring and early summer due to cold dry winds and strong gales.
