Hi guys 
aware there’s a laurel thread 
but nothing wrong with mine growing 
tonight when I was watering them I noticed the tops of them looked burnt 
I expected whole plants this only seems be at top 
at first I was wondering if they were actually burnt as this definitely wasn’t there other day 
we had high winds over the weekend now it’s hot not sure it’s that’s affected it 
can anyone advice pls 
thanks 😊

    Sounds like weather damage ... although given its changeability just recently, whether it’s drought, frost, heat or wind ... who can say? 🙄 

    Im sure it’ll be fine .... nipping the growing tips will encourage it to thicken up nicely. 😊

    It's exactly as @Dovefromabove describes. Nothing to worry about. 
    I just looked at one of mine yesterday as I was going in that direction. All nipped on the new growth with all the recent frost. It just gets picked off - if I can be bothered.  ;)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

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