Hi All, I'm only new in the gardening world. Last Summer we planted a laurel hedge around our site. It was a very harsh winter obviously and now the leaves on the laurels are yellow with brownish spots and holes and show no signs of new growth.

I would be disgusted if they were to die and all the time and money invested went to waste. Any advice would be gratefully accepted Very Happy

The same thing happened to a small laurel hedge we planted, so we dug out one plant to see what was going on. We found the clay soil was compacted so the roots had nowhere to go and the plants were not only hungry, but probably had been sitting in water too during our very wet weather.
We dug a deeper trench, mounded and improved the soil and added manure and the plants all recovered.
Your plants sound hungry......maybe for nitrogen ? Not sure, I'm no expert.
