Laurel - brown leaf edges

United Kingdom Gb

I have just moved my laurel - and I am getting brown edges to the leaves.
Is this disease - or simply too little water.
Thanks in advance, Iain

On plant Prunus laurocerasus (Laurel)



Don't panic. Laurel is very tough. But you should have waited until November. Simply keep an eye on it during summer drought periods and then heap GALLONS of water upon it. It will pull through. But next time, move plants during the autumn/winter. . . . .
