Honey fungus? Please help!
So I was cutting back my hedges recently, and noticed that the trunks aren't looking as they used to be. The hedges also aren't growing quite as thick last year. Some of the branches are dead and brittle.
From my online research, it looks like the hedge may have honey fungus. I've attached some pictures.
Quite depressingly, I understand I may have to take out the whole hedge. The hedge on the other side of the garden is very healthy and I really want to keep it that way.
Was wondering if there is any way around this? What a horrid start to the spring season!
