Norfolk, United Kingdom
I have a newly planted ( bare root ) laurel hedge ( 80plants) which I planted last November. It is growing very well and all looked very healthy until a couple of days ago, 2 of the plants ( not together in the row) suddenly wilted. I couldn't see any superficial evidence - so I dug them up. The roots had grown well and the only problem I could see was thousands of red ants - could this be the problem?
The remaining plants I have also noticed the edges of some of the leaves have been "gnawed" at .
Anyone any ideas for this?
