Anonymous added on September 19, 2017 | Answered

A have a beech hedge which seems to be dying. The hedge is about 10 feet high and about 40 years old. A section of the hedge has turned brown. I attach 3 photos, the first shows a general view of the hedge including a dead section, the second a view of the dead part and the third a close up of the dead leaves. What can I do about this please?

This appears to be a fungal or bacterial issue. There are a few things that you can do. I have a recipe that I use that is very broad, powerful, and most of all... safe. If you don't have every ingredient, it is ok, but please don't skimp on soil priming. It is important.

The recipe is as follows: First, you will want to prime the ground with dolomitic lime, then spread wettable sulfur to Kill off any infection in the soil. I Also like to spray the plant itself. Mix a few drops of one or more of these ingredients into warm water with a spoonful of coconut oil: Rosemary oil, lavender oil, neem oil, garlic oil, cinnamon extract/oil and for really bad cases, also add clove oil.
