Privet Hedge leaf fall
Hi I’m new to this forum. I have a privet hedge which was planted 3 years ago as 3ft high plants. The plants are now 5ft high. However for the last 2 years the leaves have got brown spots on them and fallen off. The plant itself looks healthy and new leaf buds are everywhere on the plants again this year. The hedge has quite a lot of ivy growing up the wire mesh fence behind it but not on the plants. Does anyone know what the problem might be. I’ve attached a couple of pictures for reference.
