Q. Grisilinia hedge

Two years ago I planted fifteen Grisilinia as a hedge. Most of them are doing very well. However, one died a year of planting. Iremoved this. A year later I note that another Grisilinia in the hedge has blackening and drooping leaves. I think it is dying. What can I do to keeep the other plants healthy. What is causing isolated Grisilinias to die?
Thank you

This sounds like a specific to cultivar fungal infection. I would recommend putting dolomitic lime and wettable sulfur around each one. This will help kill off anything as long as it hasn't progressed too far.
