I'm worrying about the same problem as I had my 1-yr-old hedge sprayed last year and it has grown wonderfully this year. However over the past few days I've noticed some of those blackspots starting to appear again.
Apparently last year it was due to the very wet summer.....and I'm afraid the same may be happening now, because of our wet July.
