Hi all, this is my first post here and Iím hoping to get some muc
needed help to sharpen my gardening skills.
I noticed this weekend that a tree I have in my front garden is lookin
awful. Iím pretty sure that it took itís turn for the worse earlier thi
week from Tuesday when we had a cold day (but no frost). Now Iím no
sure what the name of the tree is, but itís an evergreen because al
pictures I have of the front of the house (and Iíve lived there for
years) show the tree is always green (including winter time). This i
what the tree would normally look like. If anyone can tell me the nam
of the tree Iíd be grateful.
Regrettably this is what it looks like now. (Notice the leafs aroun
the base of the tree, some are bronze, others are dark green)
In our front garden we do have a short but dense Golden privet bus
which runs along side it, that too has started to deteriorate in areas
On both the tree and the privots the leafs have just turned a bronze an
crisped, with no signs of fresh growth.
This is what they now look like.
Iíve checked for signs of pests but nothing out of the norm Ė (not tha
I really know what Iím looking for). No weed killer has been used o
this area too.
Because there is plenty of other shrubbery such as Lavendar, Holly
Conifers, two Silver Birches that appear fine, Iím hoping that it ma
just be down to a case of needing more water, but I have watered m
front garden when there has been a dry period.
This is a picture of the front garden taken a few months back.
Any help would be much appreciated.
