Every night the Gritter Lorry came a couple of months ago it managed to spray the earth where my olive tree is growing with grit. The tree is now looking distinctly sick as is the grass around the bed which is brown. Help ...?




It'll be the salt contained in the grit that's caused the trouble. Little you can do now I'm afraid, other than to water as much as you can to try to dilute the salts. Sounds like its already been absorbed by the plant/s though...

Contact the roads department or land maintenance department at your local council. My neighbour had a similar problem with her roses and they replaced all of them.
