Problem with cherry laurel

Janice39Janice39 Posts: 2
Hi, we are in Hertfordshire,have just moved and one of our cherry laurels has a rust colour on many of its leaves but only few obvious holes. The new growth seems to be stunted and a yellowy colour instead of dark green. What could this be and how can we remedy it.

    It's fairly normal. All evergreens drop foliage, especially after winter. Most problems with them can be solved by cutting back. Lots of holes everywhere can be shot hole disease.
    If you have a photo it will help 

    There's a thread devoted to laurels. I'll see if I can find it   :)

    Here you go - plenty of info here - it's a long thread  ;)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Many thanks for that. Very helpful. Cant show you a photo as we have already cut the affected leaves off!
