We have buxus plants planted as hedging along both sides of a path in front of our house. Planted seven years ago they have thrived until leaves when the leaves of many of them – especially on the far side of the path where rainwater gathers and they are less sheltered from wind – have turned brown and are falling off in alarming quantities, although there are still some new, light green leaves on the tops of the plants. What could have caused this and is there any way of saving them?

It is possible that the plants are suffering from the excess water failing to drain from the rootzone or that a water-born disease called Phytophthora is now prevelant. The biggest worry for our box hedges is the evidence now of a wind born fungus known overseas as ‘Box Blight’. An effective cure for this appears some time away unfortunately. More information is available if you Google Buxus Disease.
