Box blight

Hi

Does anybody know if box blight affects other plants near by, such as conifers, these have all been in place for about 4 years with no previous show of blight to any of them, but  2 of my specimen conifers are now going brown - or could this all be down to too much rain!

Many thanks

    Conifers won't get box blight.

    On the other hand, conifers will go brown for a variety of other reasons

    VERDUN - I've just found the labels I've kept from the plants.

    Juniper Chinensis - Blue Alps (which is showing a little browning of the pendulous branches) &

    Juniperus squamata - Blue carpet (this is nearly all brown now), but I note from the 'Position' on the label - wide range of soil conditions ' except extremely wet' , so I guess this is my problem.  With future (months or years?) weather conditions expected to continue wet, I could always put a pond in.

    We live in a totally exposed situation on ALL sides of our property, no tree shelter; and not allowed to plant any.  Hedges are kept at roughly 3/4ft, as we are surrounded by farmland.
