Black spots on my laurel leaves

Asked May 2, 2018, 11:24 AM EDT

My big plant looks very bad. A newer one in beginning to get the black spots. What is the disease? The treatment?

Can you please send us photos of the plant and the symptoms you see? You can attach up to three photos to this reply.


This is leaf spot on old foliage. We see that new growth is coming out nice and healthy. The old leaves will eventually fall off and you can rake them out. This is not anything that would require a fungicide treatment -- they are just older leaves that are declining.
