Lovely spring photos to look at and enjoy as the wind hurtles passed the house and the heavy squalls batter the windows up here in the north.

Why have my box plants turned orange?????

Posted: 26/03/2015 at 08:49

Hi, I have struggled with our box hedge for over 5 years, just get one bit sorted and another goes.  I am afraid it sounds as if you have the dreaded box blight.

cut out the affected areas, clear out as much of the rubbish on the ground and replant.

our hedge gets a liquid seaweed feed twice a year.

good luck

Mature Beech Trees - Splitting Bark

Having lost a 200 year old beech tree in the winter storms I would definitely recommend a tree surgeon ( make sure he's not looking for business, ask your local garden centre) comes and surveys the tree
