Skip Laurel Care
Last year I planted five four-foot skip laurels. Most have done well. One died and I took it back and got a two foot replacement (two footer was all they had at the time). The replacement is not doing well and it almost completely dead. I tried removing most of the dead leaves so it could focus on what was still alive. I did this with one of the others that once struggled and it now seems fine. Could it be the soil at the location? It is in-line with three others, so I don't think the conditions are very different at all. Is there anything I can do to try to save this little guy?
Also, any advice for how to care for the ones that are doing ok? I haven't fertilized them. Should I be watering them in this dry March. There are other signs of growth in the yard, with the grass getting going and the Bradford Pear blooming.
