Help New to gardening - new beech hedge in trouble
Hi I am very new to gardening, last year we planted a new beech hedge 60 plants 18 in high, spaced 15in apart in a double row. The first year they got wooly aphid and didn't grow much. This year the top most leaves have gone brown from the tip and died. I have been watering them via drip hose for an hour every other day when its dry and feeding them once a week with growmore 777liquid fertilizer as advised by the garden centre. Can anyone help, I did not know it could be so hard to grow a beech hedge.
