HELP! What can be causing that? There used to be a different bush in there that got dried up like 4 months ago, and the gardener replaced it with this one after spraying the soil to eliminate anything that was causing it. But now is happening again, and is only this one, all the other ones right next to it, are fine. This is a blue Juniper.

A one-time soil spray isn't going to eliminate anything, for multiple reasons. Soil holds a *lot* of water, a surface spray will only wet a tiny fraction of it. Effective fungicide application to soils requires application to more than the surface, either by drenching the soil or spreading/mixing in a solid form that dissolves in rain or irrigation (and so covers all the soil). If you're starting from seed, spraying the soil in the hole where you plant the seed can protect the young seedling, but I'm guessing that was a transplant and the vast majority of the root ball was planted into totally untreated soil.

The other reason is that virtually no fungicides (and none approved for use in areas where people live) kill everything in one shot. They need repeat applications to keep the disease organism controlled, at least until the plant is established.

I don't know what disease that plant has, but D1 linked to a good resource.

Water and dish soap for what? Dish soap is sometimes used as a cheap substitute for an insecticide but most dish soap is toxic to plants. Even if not toxic it's not going to do anything positive for a fungal or bacterial infection except maybe wash off some spores (but getting the leaves wet might be worse than leaving the spores...)

The mulch looking dry doesn't mean the soil under it isn't wet. Things dry from the surface down.

Hi- where I currently work is very toxic and I was recently offered a new job at an entirely different place (big change!). Seems like an easy move? Well not really- one of my closest colleagues is my direct coworker and struggles with a piece of the job that is key to the role. With me leaving, I would be abandoning them. I’m very conflicted because I very much want this new job, but I’m feeling extremely guilty for leaving a dear friend to fend for their self. Any advice on what to do?
