Browning and Dying Hedges
The shrubs that make up my backyard hedges started turning brown, and two of them dried out completely. I removed them. I don't know their scientific name but I've always called them "spreading yews". I've lost those two shrubs already that were next to each other, and now I'm losing others on the opposite side of the pathway. The browning does seem to be spreading from shrub to the shrub, as if the browning is "contagious".
I'm going to lose all of my hedges if I don't find a solution. Has anyone run into this problem? If so, what's the cure?
