Wilting Skip Laurels....

    Hi there,

    My client just planted new skip laurels one week ago and they are wilting badly with some yellowing. I've posted two pics. I told him that they need more water and we watered them well with a drip line overnight (2 days ago) and for a few hours yesterday. There have been no noticeable signs of improvement and he's worried that they may be wilting due to getting too MUCH water. I'm not sure if the pictures will help but do you think that this is from too little or too much water?

    Do you think these can be saved?

    He's located in NY, shrubs were planted and watered last Friday and there was about 3 inches of rain on Saturday. However, it's been hot this week.

    Thanks

    Maybe a little transplant shock. Too much sun? See a little fungus or disease going onThumbs Up
