Does anyone know what is causing this?


I am very new to gardening and am learning as I go along so please bear with me. I have planted boxus hedges last year in my garden but a few weeks ago this started developing on the leaves...... does anyone know what is causing it please?image

    Hi kyla. It looks as if it could be Box blight.

    It's a fungal disease spreading across the UK.  The RHS has this info and advice -

    Do not buy any more box plants until you have this problem resolved either by successful care or removal and burning as it will affect future plantings and also neighbours' plants.

    Thanks for replies. Did think it maybe this but the leaves are bright copper in colour. No patches are dying or drying out?
