Medium_20190424_084303_medium_ Lilly Pilly branches are dying

Some of the lilly pilly from my hedge is dying. The leaves start to yellow and then the whole branch dries out. Always starts in the center of the plant. The interesting thing is that on the same plant the other branches are looking healthy, even got new leaves. But once the center branch dies out, the next branch starts to yellow till it completely dries out. I can't see any bugs on it (beside a bit of psyllids, but that is under control). On the attached photo, one plant has died, and the other 2 are almost there.
Please help!

Answer: Hi Barbara,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

It’s hard for us to determine exactly what has gone wrong with your plant. Can you please provide more information regarding the plant?

How the plant has been fed and watered?
What is the aspect of the plant? Eg. Full sun, part shade
Has the soil been improved or disturbed recently?
Can you see any pests or diseases?
How old is the plant?

Once we receive this information, we will be able to provide you with the best advice on how to treat the plant moving forward.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,
Louise
