Hi, I'm looking for some advice about a Hebe hedge growing beside the sea but unfortunately over the last 4-6 weeks I have noticed some yellowing of the leaves even on this year's growth. I am hoping it's not terminal as it has taken a long time to grow the hedge in what can be a fairly exposed area in the winter.

If any body has some insight as to what might be causing this I would appreciate your input.

I hope the photo might help with the diagnosis, many thanks, Ciaran

Hope it isn't what I saw on gardeners world recently, some kind of blight. If it is, its a case of digging it out and burning it. hopefully not, i'm sure somebody will post who knows about this stuff. Best of luck.

Looks a little hungry is all. Old leaves giving up the ghost to allow the new ones come on. Remember to give it a feed next spring.
