Question: I have a 1 yr old Ollie hedge. ABout 6 weeks ago, a few of the plants began to have their leaves turn pale green and fall off. Other branches turned completely brown (an oily sort of brown - not the dry type) and dried out while other branches seemed to be OK. There doesn't seem to be a consistent reason. Dieing plants are next to healthy ones. They are all watered equally (once a week), the soil is OK - somewhat amended, to which I added gypsum, organic fertilizer and mulch.
I trimmed the ill plants, but nothing seems to improve. Any ideas?
Answer: Olea europaea 'Montra'
