Buxus problem

Dear All,

I am not sure what this problem on the buxus is. It doesn’t look like blight because only the top half of each leaf is damaged, it doesn’t look like caterpillar or moths becuase the leafs do not have sickle shaped bites and it seems to be the top half of the leaves only.

was thinking it could be Macrophoma leaf spot. Any ideas or suggestions?

thanks in advance

  • Dear AnniD,

    Thanks for that, was mulling iver that as well, just want to make sure it wasn’t a p&d first.

    thanks again

    My box hedge looks like that but it is weather damage from all the snow we've had up here. It will soon green up and recover.

    I agree with the above however do keep an eye out for Box moth as it has already made an appearance in the Greater London area.
