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.
