Cherry Laurel Leaves Are Turning Yellow And Falling Off

Question From: TEXAS
Q: Leaves on my cherry laurel have turned yellow and are falling off. There are 4 other of these that look very healthy.

A: I don't have a crystal ball, but it sounds like too much water. Cherry Laurels do not tolerate wet feet. That shrub may be in a low spot and collecting runoff from other areas of the garden. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
