Leaf Blights and Spots
Symptoms and damage
blights and leaf spots can be caused by bacterial and fungal infections. These
ailments generally manifest as small, spotty discolorations on the leaves of
laurel bushes. Over time, the spots may rot away, leaving holes in the leaves
and leading to defoliation.
you can control them by pruning parts of the shrub showing signs of infection.
Dispose of the debris rather than allowing it to fall to the ground or
composting. Water your laurel shrub using a drip hose rather than sprinklers to
limit the amount of water falling on the leaves themselves.
