roots in soil

Posted: 23/06/2014 at 21:43

Hi eddm, welcome to the forum

I'd remove some of the roots, you'll break them when you dig anyway.

Soil next to a wall tends to be rather dry. I suggest you make that border quite a bit wider so you don't need to plant close to the wall. It will be better for the plants and look less 'mean'

Give it a good dig and get some muck/compost in there if you can.

We're always here Gareth. Not all of us are here all the time and you might find someone who knows exactly what it is later on.

Fungi grows on dead wood and the fungi you see on the surface are rarely the cause of death

Privet Hedge Dying

My privet hedge has died in places but it's ancient (1960) and worn out.

 

How old is yours?

I have  honey fungus in part of the garden but have only seen the famous 'bootlaces' under the bark of dead large trees. Also the symptoms have not involved black leaves. More failing growth with sparse yellow and brown leaves through a summer followed by non-appearance the next year.

I've put in links to the RHS on HF and wilt that may be useful if only to eliminate. Have you checked for obvious pests and damage to bark. I lost large lumps of privet when the bank voles ate the bark, little b......s
