We have several two foot tall bay trees which we planted last summer in a raised bank bewteen conifers. The leaves are all browning at the edges. What should we do?



My instant thought is that the conifers have taken all the goodness out of the soil. When you planted the bay trees did you excavate a large hole for each of them and fill it with good compost? Are the bay trees getting enough light and water?

Aswell as Moon growers information, are they getting windburnt ?
A combination of the whole lot would make them suffer badly to the point of death.
