Could the new growth have been frosted do you think? I can see that it's new tips on the laurel but I can't tell with the ivy.
We had a hard frost couple of weeks ago that browned off some new growth. I can't see the pyracantha properly but my laurel is looking a bit like that in places.
The other thing that upsets new growth is chemicals. Not necessarily yours.
