HELP!!What wrong with this Box hedge.

Recommended Posts

Please can someone help.


What's happened to this Box?


Was trimmed, sympathetically a week or so again.

In sporadic places. No reason why. It died off. No the whole plant.


Very strange.

Thanks Steve. From what I can see it's not box blight

Was my first suspicion.

No black on it

The other blight has white dot on the underside

It's just dead patches. In random places.

Really strange.

There is plenty of other box hedges round other parts of the garden. All trimmed around the same time and again sympathetically. And they haven't done like the pics above

Very nice hedges.


As I said. There are random areas of dying patches.

Some all small than a hand.


And the areas are totally contained.


Can't be chemical spill either.
