My laurel bush is dropping its green leaves but it looks like someone has cut them off at the base of the leaves with scissors .any suggestions otherwise its very healthy .



I think any evergreen shrub will loose some leaves at this time, and then will grow some new ones in the spring, otherwise it would get bigger and bigger!

do the ends of the leaves look slightly corky? if yes then this is natural leaf fall. However if they do look chewed then it sounds like a pest. Could be insects, birds or squirrels.
