Laurel hedge was great for 5 years ...now crinkling new growth
I planted a cherry laurel hedge 5 years ago, every Spring I have pruned with secateurs and it has been healthy, dark green & grown great. This year I cut with hedge trimmers as it's now quite a size. I have noticed all new leaves are crinkly, some larger leaves have yellowing spots and the whole thing looks less dense. I think the ground is perhaps a little dry too. I have started watering nightly & just looking into feeds but wondering if it was the trimming with a machine that has caused this? Also, I have lots of liquid veg feed & wondered if I can use this?
Any assistance greatly received, don't want to loose my lovely hedge! Thank you.
