I have planted a bench hedge last spring and 2weeks ago put down some 10-10-20 fertilizer. The leaves have appeared all burnt and off color, is it possible that i have harmed the hedges by using to much. Is there anything that i can do to revive the hedges? would appreciate anyones help.

I presume you mean beech. Putting on any fertilizer too near the roots will cause burning and the leaves will appear scorched. Sometimes when fertilizer is placed too close to the stems of plants in hot weather the evaporation of nitrogen can cause scorching. usually however the plant recovers and the scorching is replaced by new greener leaves.

Beech hedging correct... Embarassed

Apologies for the typo it went unnoticed...
Thanks for the reply Michael, is there anyway of checking the plant once the leaves are burned and fallen off I have removed the lower end of the stem (closest to ground) and typical it should be green once outer layer removed but in some cases it appears dry with no green life apparent. Is there anyway alternative way to check for life or even feed to replenish nutrition assuming they are still alive..??Thanks Exclamation
