Had 5 12' Leylands planted last spring. Now that winter is over, it
seems that they are a bit yellow/brown (they seemed fine during the
winter). Is this normal? And also, what should we do now as far as
fertilizing, pruning..etc....any recommendations?
Did you get any ice this winter? Is the browning on the south side? How
close are they? What was the soil like when planted? Are they planted level
or lower or slightly raised? Are they in a low area with poor drainage? They
don't like wet feet....Did you get a warranty? Do you see any bagworms yet?
Why 12'...Thats kinda big to transplant don't you think? Leylands grow 15'
in 5 years from cuttings... A 3 gal leyland is usually 3' tall at Home Depot
or Lowes and only costs $11.75, a 7 gal. is 5' tall and $29.00 and has a 1
year warranty...They grow really fast..They have a better chance at
acclimating than a 12' tall anything, especially something that has the
"invasive" growth rate as a Leyland......
