Why have 2 Laurel bushes died in the same position?
I planted about 12 laurels a year ago and they are all looking lovely. However one of them died after 6 months. I tried spraying with anti fungal and anti bug spray to no avail. Eventually I removed the plant and replaced. These are established Laurels about 5 foot in heigh and spread. About 2 months ago the second laurel developed the same condition (spots of brown, holes appearing then brown around the edge of leaves). I was advised that it may be the soil in this particular spot, but cannot see anything upon digging out the plant and placing in a large container with organic compost etc. I have notices a small (large pinhead size) snail on the reverse of one of the leaves. Any ideas please?
