Laurels - Help Please
New to the forum and new to gardening. I wonder if anyone can help me please.
I've moved into a new home with a garden in September. In January I had 6 root balled laurels planted at the end of my garden for privacy. They have gradually started to develop 2 problems, one being shot hole disease and the other is yellow leaves.
I started out by feeding them blood, fish and bone in February and not much happened. The garden centre said I needed something that wasn't slow release so I gave them seaweed feed which perked the droopy leaves up but not much else. It apparently helps them with the shock of being planted and helps fight disease. They also advised I spray with a fungal fighter, but to also remove all infected leaves from the plant and the floor. Not much has changed.
I have other laurels nearby - they have the shot hole disease, but not the yellow leaves
So in April another garden centre have said to not use the fungal spray, the shot hole disease won't kill the laurels and is very common and to stop the yellowing of leaves I should put a teaspoon of Epsom salts around the base of each bush and water them as the yellowing is likely to be a magnesium deficiency. I'm not sure about the measurement of the Epsom salts.
Has anyone else had this problem and how did you solve it. I'm clueless! Help much appreciated.
