Hi, this is my first question. I have a small border under a bay window where I planted some (5 - 2 balls and 3 cones architectural topiary Box plants two years ago - they are diseased and no matter what I try to do having surfed for hours, they are not doing well, look dreadful and I fear there is no alternative but to dig them out. Can anyone suggest an alternative short shrub (s), that could take their place ? - I don't really like grasses but am open to other suggestions. Position is shade in the morning and sun in the afternoon. I am based in Bucks

When you have more than one plant die in an area, there is a big problem. The only way to find out what the problem is, is to take a soil sample and send it to the local university soil lab and find out what the problem is. When you get a test, the soil lab can tell you what to do and what to plant to fix the problem. If I recommended any plants to you when you have a soil problem, it would be irresponsible on my part.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
