Help needed please with laurel hedge issues...

Posted: 03/07/2016 at 08:49


Our hedge gets Shot Hole in patches. I get the shrivelled new leaves too. It may be pruning too early in the year, not sure. We have blackbirds nesting in ours so don't prune until July when they have fledged. We only prune once as it's such a massive job.

The holes are Shot Hole disease. I puzzled over this one for years with my laurel hedge. It's a fungus. I spray with Fungus Fighter. Before you know it you will have a hedge like this.


This is about 8-10 foot high and 6-8 foot wide and is a lot of work to keep it tidyish. x

I am excited to see it flower too. I hope it does. My challenge is to keep the OH away with the strimmer!

This popped up this year where I had a planter of Pelargoniums last Summer. I have never known this before. i am hoping it gets to flowering size to see what it is. has anyone else had them self seed before? X

Can anyone identify this daffodil?

Thank you Ladybird4. I've googled those varieties.  I seem to remember buying Minnow a few years ago now. They are not scented so I presume not Sundisc Although they look more like the pictures of those. X

This is a tiny daffodil. barely bigger than a 1p piece. The leaves are not much bigger than chives. Any ideas please?

I think what you're seeing as a flower is a new shoot. It looks very healthy!

2 could be Spirea Bridal Wreath, like Fairygirl says, mine looks like your picture at the moment.

I'm wondering if 4 is a weigela.

Lovely structure to your garden. When you place the clematis bear in mind you have bought a vigorous variety.
