  We have 2, my other half is a bit handy with the snips, we " reclaimed" the conifers  and shapped them,  they have been snipped for about 5 years now. Don't want to leave it if there is a chance of something spreading.  Gutted its gone brown  

conifers like cool weather

Can anyone suggest why my conifer has gone brown, i have 2 trees, this one  has developed brown patches, there are some green leaves underneath on some of the branches, but not a happy tree. Is this likely to affect my other tree, or is it just dry? i can find non evidence of beasts on the branches. I live in Aberdeen, east coast.

If the heathers get too tall and woody, you can dig a hole and bury the whole plant, so that just the green ends approx 8" are still showing, i sunk 3 heathers last year, still doing well and avoids that straggly woody look. I try to use low growing heathers, upto 8" which seem to keep a good shape.
