i have two small round box hedges. there looking rather yellow orange now since buying two more bigger ones . are they ok or is there anything i can do with them? had them for 5 years



You don't say where you are in the UK (please amend your profile to do this) but if you are in the south where there has been a drought it is likely a lack of water. Also if you have had them in the same pots for 5 years you need to feed too.

Do you suggest anything in particular? I am pretty new to this gardening malarky and im keen to learn!!

I'd probably remove as much of the existing compost as possible without disturbing the trees and replace with fresh multi-purpose compost with some blood, fish and bone meal.
