Last year my 15 metre box hedge started looking sick. It spread rapidly and not wanting to loose it, I found your box blight product. I am so pleased with the result!
I am still applying it monthly but will stop over winter. Thank you for making this product available. I previously had 12 box balls that were 15 years old and they got it and I had to dispose of them all so I am very grateful I could save my box hedge!
