We recently planted some Topiary Balls and have added Buxus Feed. We water the root every 2-3 days and our balls are starting to get dry, yellow/brown leaves.

We aren't very clued up with plants, but are gutted that they seem to be dying. Can anyone tell me where we are going wrong?

Remove the stones away from the base of the plant to expose the soil. Dig down about 6 to 10 inches beside the plant and feel the bottom of the hole. Is it wet or too dry? You have a moisture problem, but I'm not sure which it is. If its too dry then water with the water hose very deeply and if its too wet then hold back on the water. Buxus Feed should only be used at 1/4 the recommendations of the manufacture.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
