My hedge is dying :( Is it too late?
Hello, I have a hedge that goes around the edge of my front garden and offers privacy to us. It seems to be dying or dead?) and I’m hoping there is a way to recover it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated on how to either fix the current hedge or replace the dead portion if necessary/possible.
I have attached a picture of a healthy part plus photos of a dead part.
and they This just started to happen and I’ve no idea why
do I need to have the entire hedge removed and get a new one?
What’s the best long term solution?
I'm tempting to say lack of water but could also be overzealous ' trimming'. Having said that, that's fairly extreme die back.
I'd replace it with something else ... beech, holly and yew are nice for a front garden hedge and both can be kept nice and slim so they don't take up as much room as leylandii or laurel.
Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
@Chris-P-Bacon it probably took 2 or 3 years. I didn’t know what to do or who to turn to.
@JennyJ thanks for the link. I’ll check the site.
@Dovefromabove many thanks for the alternative hedge suggestions. I’ll look in to them. Dread to think what it will cost.
