Hello all,

We planted a beech hedge in March\April last year, they've come along nicely but in the last few weeks I've noticed a browning of leaves on some and then a complete browning to dead on others, presumably the final result.

I've attached 2 images. I initially was told to water them well as young shrubs would need it, I did that and in the last few weeks we've had LOTS of rain, so at this point i doubt this is drought?

There are no aphids and we've kept the weeds back fairly well around the bottoms. It only appears to affect certain branches and sometimes an entire tree. Would any one have any ideas on what this might be?

Thank you all, very much.

Bend the branches se if they snap off if they do then the branch is dead so remove it, if it is flexible then it is only transplant shock they look healthy to me from the photos, were they planted as bare rooted plants or pot grown, either ways I would not worry yet, keep grass and weeds from smothering them and just because it rained does not mean the roots have received adequate amounts check the soil by pushing you finger into it to check if it is moist around the plants also make sure they are not waterlogged.
