Hello,
I planted a lot of grisellinia a couple of weeks back. I dug about 10 inches down and filled it with compost while planting the hedges. The drainage in my garden is terrible (see post in lawn section). Now, a lot of the leaves (at the bottom of the hedging) are starting to show black dots and turning black.

Is this due to the bad drainage? Are these all pretty much dead now?

thanks.

Possibly the water logging. Any pics, close ups?
