Escallonia Leaf Spot01 July 2014
Our services are not limited solely to working with trees, but we also apply our knowledge and skills to horticultural work.
Our client contacted us as she was concerned about the poor appearance of her Escallonia hedge which formed a boundary screen between her garden and a busy road. We were able to diagnose the condition as Escallonia Leaf Spot – a foliar fungal infection which affects the vigour and appearance of the infected shrub.
Although at the present time there is no known preventative cure, we proposed implementing a number of cultural improvements to the immediate growing environment of the hedge which should assist in its’ regeneration and future renovation.
These works included the selective pruning of the hedge to remove dead leaf and branch material, the removal of congested competing vegetation growing below the hedge and an application of an organic top dress fertiliser and mulch.
Client statement from the work completion form: “REALLY pleased with the work done – professional, friendly and helpful. Perfect clear up at the end. Thanks Ben.”
