North East England, United Kingdom
Can anyone identify the problem on my two laurels? Both are in large pots, both on the patio, some sun early morning, but mainly in shade from the house. Lots of new growth on both shrubs and yet obviously poorly leaves. On the first one, I'm constantly pulling off blackened leaves which curl and crisp at the edges. The second one seems to have a different problem, the leaves although browning are paler, do not crisp up and the discolouration seems to work from the inside out. This one gets hardly any sun but has been fine in this position for several years - problems started last year and I was advised to re-pot, which I did and it seemed to perk up but now looks poorly again. I don't think it's drought as I constantly water them. Too much water??? I can't see any bugs on them. Any help greatly appreciated, I would hate to lose these two shrubs.
