Cherry Laurel Leaves Are Turning Yellow And Brown

Question From: El Paso, Texas, United States
Q: I have two cherry laurels planted in my front yard they are getting yellow and brown leaves. Am I doing something wrong. How often should I water and fertilize and are they acid loving plants. Please help they were a birthday gift from my husband so they are very speacial to me.

A: Take photos to your local independent nursery or garden center that sells these plants. I live in Michigan and have no experience growing these plants or gardening in your Zone. Most shrubs do best when their soil is kept moist. Timing varies with weather and types of soil. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
