    My front hedge in my south facing garden appears to be under attack.

    I’ve googled it with no joy, any of you fine Gardner’s help?

    Hi @Philcw1984 if the is an Euonymus then I think it is Euonymus scale which we are really under attack from now.. Try spraying with Bug clear but not an easy one to get rid of.. Or a mix of Neem oil and horticultural soap. You can buy prepared mix of it on eBay...Best time to spray is usually a June and September, but I think I would just go for it now as only early July..

      Thanks Marley

      Just being doing some reading up..... doesn’t sound good. My hedge has been attacked and has some serious leaf drop.

      I can’t believe I have not noticed it sooner.

      I had some bug clear in the shed, fingers crossed. I don’t want to loose it!

      Thanks again!

      Phil
