Thanks for the replies. I have lived in the area and the hedges were well established when I came....I will take some photos tomorrow - weather dependent. The first hedge started to lose its leaves last summer and gradually more and more of this hedge has become defoliated - definitely 10m now dead. The next garden over is again losing sections in the midlle of what was a healthy hedge - we wait to see if it rejunvenates but I can't see any sign of buds/growth.

Hi, my neighbours' privet hedges are dying. Our gardens are about 30+metres in length and each garden is losing hedge on each side of the gardns and in front gardens too. In some sections the hedge is completely devoid of any leaves and others are looking thread bare.I am fortunate that I have holly/hawthorn hedging but am concerned if the disease may contaminate other species. Any ideas?

Help! How can we use this yard?

Which way is your garden facing and where and when do you get the sun - on all of it or just part of it?

Can anyone identify this weed?

Could be a bramble or a japanese anemone...or something else!

I am still feeding our hedgehogs here in Greater London/Essex. Food doesn't go for a few days sometimes and then is taken. Haven't seen one in the flesh for a while but they do leave 'calling cards' so I know that it is a hedgehog eating the food.  

Can anyone identify my new fungus?

How about a photo Ann?

White Beam problems

Posted: 27/12/2014 at 22:12

My white beam's leaves are exactly the same this year. It's leaves are still hanging on in there. However it has produced berries for the first time in several years. I'm not worried about it, I think it will be fine next year. I believe like the others the dry warm weather in the autumn has caused the problem.
