Hi All

I have a grisliana hedge about 10 years old. It has started wilting from the bottom and losing its leaves. It appears to be dying. I was wondering if the hard frost (-12) in january would have damaged it.

I saw a beautiful griselinia hedge years ago cut to the ground by frost but it eventually came back, although it took a few years to return to its original state.

The temp went down to minus 11°C in January so I wouldn't be surprised if griselinia was affected. More and more of my plants are starting to show the effects of the frost. Temperatures could drop to minus 5 or perhaps even 7 at the end of this week. I hope it doesn't but with a high, building north of Scotland, the potential will be there.

if all the plants are damaged or showing signs of wilting then frost is the probable cause but if just an odd plant is affected then suspect Honey fungus or phythophthora diseases.

Thanks for your replies. All plants are damaged and are losing all their leaves
