Q.Would A Laurel Bush Kill Of A Privett

Zone Uk | Anonymous added on June 4, 2021 | Answered

I have a very long privett hedge and the first bush died back so we replaced it with a laurel bush and then the next one did the same and so on and so on each time I replace it with a laurel bush any ideas why the privett which is healthy suddenly dies off?

Are the laurel bushes shading the privet? Sudden shade may have weakened them. It also could be the privets have a disease such as verticillium wilt that has nothing to do with the new laurels.
