    Is this fireblight?

    Thank you Redwing, I'm pretty sure it's not lack of water as I've been very careful in that regard, and a birch planted at the same time, and getting the same attention, seems fine.

    Do new leylandii go darker in time?

    Thanks for the picture. :) I think they will remain light in colour but there is a chance they might darken slightly with maturity and trimming but won't be as dark as the others.

    When to top a new leylandii hedge tree

    Basically it's up to you. Most conifers unlike other trees will not sprout new growth from cut tip. New growth will appear from below the cut end. This will cause the Leylandii to spread out more.
