Hello
I got approx. 500 laurel bare root hedging planted in February this year. However now approx. ½ are failing and some have even died. When I removed the dead plants I notice they were planted way too deep (approx. 4” above the root collar). What can I do to say the rest… can I gently pull them up to the root collar and firm in?
Any help greatly appreciated
Regards
D

Give them plenty of water and hopefully propagate some in the fall. I would be slow to interfere with the roots at this time of the year, you may kill the plant. It may not necessarily be the way that they were planted. I bought some beech last year and lost a lot of them. Replaced them at the start of the year. Fingers crossed.
