Lurgied Laurel

We planted 3 laurel bushes last year. Two have sprouted well this spring but the third has developed bropwn spots on the leaves which then drop off. Oddly enough there are many shoots trying to come through but they do not seem to be making much headway...

I did read that laurels would defeat blights themselves but would appreciate best advice...

    It may be a little dry at the end of the bed. It may also be a sickly plant but the shoots look healthy enough. Don't give up on it yet wait for the warmer weather and water well.

    Good luck

    Word of warning, don't feed them.
