Having problem with leaf spot on escallonia bush. This is the second year with leaf spot. It has affected the lower section of the bush. The top half grows quite high into tree and is not affected at all. Leaves dropping off and leavng the lower branches bare. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
There is no sprays to cure this disease, you can help control it by clearing up the leaves that drop, and feeding the plant may help strengthen the plant, probably a bit late for that now wait for spring. For some details there is a link below.
Thanks for that Jeff. Will take your advice. Such a lovely shrub but quite devastated by the leaf spot except for up high, which is still quite healthy. Some sunshine might help also - not getting much of that here in Northern Ireland.
Thank you again
