have an evergreen fir hedge that has gone brown is now spreading to my other hedge, what can it be?



I'm not absolutely sure about this, but there is an insect that is associated with these evergreens. I first heard of it by an article from Alan Titchmarsh. I don't think there is anything you can do to save them either. sorry it isn't better news.

So far as I know there is nothing you can do... send Bamboo a pm as she knows about this problem.
