Growing a Laurel Hedge

Anonymous added on August 24, 2015 | Answered

I have recently planted a laurel hedge. Most of it has grown really well but a section that is right behind a row of pine trees is struggling. I realize that it is very dry, as the laurel is shaded by the pine trees, and I have made sure that it is regularly watered but it is still not doing well. Someone has suggested that I should try adding some garden lime, as the soli will be acidic from the pine trees. Can anyone offer any advice?

I would start with a soil test. This is the only way to determine what the soil may need or what to amend the soil with for plant success.
