Privet Hedge Dying



  • nutcutletnutcutlet Posts: 27,354

    That's all dead Gareth but doesn't give any clue about why.

    Are there any parts going down at the moment or that are showing signs of going.?

  • No cut in a few places all nice and white with a nice green edege ?

    When you say going down ?

    The top photos show the hedge as it is now one end dead middle going other end nice and green
  • Is there no conclusion to this line of conversation?  I was expecting to see some answers as I have the same problem, but the messages just ended on the 24/06/2014!!

    I'd open another thread with your problem Roger. Add a couple of photos and see what people come up with.

    It's always better to start a new thread rather than dig up an old one. More people have a look at itimage

    Thank you, nutcutlet, I will 

  • We are having a similar problem and some of the garden trees are dying as well. There seem to be othre trees in the neighbourhood (Bromley, Kent) that are affected.
