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. The Leves are falling off also ..... Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Question

hi decwat, I'm no expert, but am a little confused......are you talking about last year's leaves...the ones that stay on the hedge over the winter ? They fall off quite naturally when the new buds start to open.......
Or are you saying this year's leaves have opened, then died and are falling off ?
I can only suggest you water the hedge really well.....we've had quite a drought in the east...not sure how much rain you've had in the west.
I'm just wondering if your hedge is simply thirsty andcsuffering for lack of water.

Agree with sive. 10-10-20 fertilizer is essentially salt which can easily burn a hedge if applied too heavily or without proper watering. Keep the hedge watered and do nothing else until next spring would be my advice.
