All the leaves on my laurel tree are being eaten away by little white mites.
These could be a scale insect. Some scale insects are white in color and attack laurel:
Whiteflies can feed on laurel and might be what you're seeing:
Spider mites are a pest that can feed on laurel trees. They don't typically appear white though.
small plants only grown 10cm in 1year, yellowing leaves always wilting, fertilized with liquid itax seaweed plus iron as recomended by garden center, clipped back lighty to try get some response but still not responding.
It sounds like you have a pH issue in the soil. If it is not responding to fertilizer, then it could be way to high of a pH for it to be available to the plant. I would get a kit to test the pH, and adjust down with iron sulfate until it is between 6 and 7. If you get it too low, then you can buffer it back up with dolomitic lime.
I have several laurel trees on the terrace. They have some brown leaves and even the new leaves are coming in curled with black edges.
There may not be enough natural rain, the roots may be too balled up or, you could have bad soil. There are dozens of causes for brown leaves. The roots might be damaged as well. Make sure you are meeting the correct criteria for this plant like correct amounts of water and light and correct sized pots
My laurels at the front of my house look dreadful! I've tried soapy water, bug spray, bone meal and plenty of water and still no joy ?
In order to treat these Laurel hedge problems, we recommend lightly trimming any affected leaves, encouraging new, healthy growth and regularly sweeping any fallen leaves around your hedge, to avoid the disease spreading. Increasing the air circulation between the plants can also help to treat and further prevent these problems; this can be done by cutting back surrounding plants or removing any nearby obstructions.
These diseases are very minor conditions, and although they cause unattractive looking foliage, Laurel hedging plants usually grow through the problems, with new leaves being unaffected.
Hello, I have a large area that was planted with laurels and very large fir trees, all had been in around 50 years, the ground looks very un-nourished, I am going to rotovate the area and plant shrubs and plants there, what should I add to the soil to replenish it and do I need to wait to plant or can it be done as soon as the area has been rotovated? thank you
Work some compost and/or purchased manure into the soil. You can go ahead and plant as soon as you have amended the soil.
I have a potted Indian Laurel tree that has some leaves that have dime size brown spots and some leaves are turning yellow. I live in Phoenix, water it every other day, it is facing south and halfway under our covered patio. I can provide pictures. Thanks for your help. Hanifah
It has a fungal leaf spot disease. Be sure to pick up the dropped leaves so as not to spread the disease or overwinter it in the soil.
Hi my laurels seem to be going yellow and have brownish holes in it, could you please advise me on what to do to revive it; could you tell me from looking at the video if they are growing or not.
It probably has a fungal infection. Be sure to pick up any leaves that fall and put them in the trash. Leaf spot rarely becomes an issue with laurels.
