Can anyone help. My 3 year old griselinia hedge is developing these black spots! Last week I removed all affected leaves, but they are back again - in abundance! Ive attached a picture. Any idea what this is and what I can do to treat before I have a bare hedge?! Thanks in advance

Purely a guess, but it may be "tar spot' , a fungi common to maple trees. It overwinters in the leaves so removing them for sanitation is good.

Thankyou - I'm thinking it could be blackspot - another fungal disease, so I've removed the affected leaves, sprayed with a fungicide and will await the results!

Welcome Adrianne. :) Griselinia can be prone to Phytothora which creates similar black patches to yours. Apparently it is currently a problem in New Zealand.
