Q.Box hedge going yellow and leaves have a white tip??

Zone WS13 8TZ | r.e@sky.com added on May 29, 2019 | Answered

I have a box hedge Buxus sempervirens to the front of my house and this was only planted about 12months ago – new build. The leaves are turning a yellow/brown colour with a white tip at the end. Has anyone any advice on what could be the cause?

It is possible that they have received too much water, and have contracted a fungal infection.

It is best to Make sure that you apply a handful of dolomitic lime and a teaspoon of wettable sulfur to each shrub. These will help kill the infection.

This article will help you to use spray fungicides as well, which may also be necessary: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/using-fungicides-in-garden.htm
