Looking to replace an Escallonia CLKD as it developed a disease making the leaves all spotty and fall off. Not sure what to replace it with. Trying another G.C. tomorrow

Make sure you eat plenty of garlic B4 you fly jillydoll  ;D

Off to look up that shrub ;-). "

Escallonia Hedge Disease

Escallonia plants have many positives, from the beautiful flowers to the dense and hardy foliage, they are a plant however that is at risk of developing leaf spot. There are ways to combat against the fungal infection, including cutting back any affected leaves and removing fallen leaves from around the plants base. Stimulating new leaf growth and avoiding the possibility of the disease spreading will go a long way to ensuring the disease does not get too severe, including symptoms such as yellowing or loss of leaves and purple to black spots with white centres which could appear on some of the foliage. There is also the chance that in the most severe of cases you end up with completely bare branches.

Summer, particularly in wet conditions is when the plant is at most risk and so keep an eye on the health of your plant whilst pruning or clipping or even whilst you are admiring its stunning bell-shaped flowers or checking to see what visitors have made it their home. Keeping your Escallonia watered and properly fed decreases the chance of leaf spot taking hold and will ensure that your plant remains fit and healthy.


Would wiegellia be a suitable shrub?  They can be pruned well and are in variegated or green.  The other one I have in a corner is privat .......

I’ve been busy doing housework.
Sat down for half hour, then started our dinners.
All done now, but I’m knackered. 😴😴
Eyes are sore from frying onions.  :'(
