Australia Au

Hi, I have a beautiful hedge of caprosma repens marble queen, kept to about 50 cm high, but from time to time a plant will just drop healthy looking leaves and die, sometimes doing this branch by branch. any ideas what could be causing this?

On plant Coprosma repens



Hi, i'm in the uk.
Coprosma is a tender shrub, maybe if you've had chilly nights this could have affected it

C. repens is tender but I didn't think that it often got that cold in Australia, P! Maybe I am wrong.
However, I would like to see a picture of a Coprosma 'hedge', Radicjay, I have not heard of one of these before.

If it's affecting one plant at a time, then it sounds like something fungal affecting the roots to me.
