brownig of box hedging

I have read that browning of box hedging is due to a physilogical disorder, is there anything that can be done to remedy this problem?



Hi Claude. Browning is a protective device, needed when food is short,,. roots are damaged (weed killer), water is short. temperature drops. temperature gets too hot. Come the Spring all should be well and green again.

I do keep adding to Po's expert advice. Sorry Poaannua it's just that you get it right and that reminds me of other things.

I would feed it with a tomato food (better than Growmore) from about March. It certainly won't hurt and could work wonders.
