I need Laurel Hedging advice please.
Hi everyone. I’m new to this forum but I have been reading the comments that I have found great help. I’m struggling with my Laurel hedge that I planted in November 2019, approx 30 5ft plants all from pots spaced 3ft apart. Up until a month ago they looked great and healthy but recently some plants have taken a turn for the worse. The soil seemed good when planted and I gave them a good dose of bone meal in each hole. We had a wet winter so didn’t need to be watered until a few weeks ago. Some plants have gone yellow, loosing leaves and very dry looking. A week ago I pruned them, chopping off a good few inches off each plant (more from the ill looking plants) and gave a feed of bone meal and have been giving them a good soaking every 3 days but they only seem to be getting worse. My aim is to grow these a good 6ft high for privacy from a public foot path. I’ve realised that they might have been planted too close to the wire stock fencing but this can come down once they get growing. Any advise would be much appreciated please.
