I have a few years old small bay tree, has always been healthy, and we use the leaves in cooking often.
Its suddenly started to turn brown, leaves dry and crispy, and a couple of other friends I know have the same things with their bay trees. We are in Cheshire.
Anyone aware of a bay tree issue, virus etc.? Only plausible explantion I've heard so far is that the frosts of a month or so back were bad enough to kill the roots. Mine is within 5ft of the house, so I'm not conviced...any ideas, other info please?
