Holly Tree Leaves Are Turning Brown

Question From: Lexington, Kentucky, United States
Q: The leaves on my holly trees are turning brown. We have had excess rain this spring. What can I do?

A: Your Holly may be suffering from winter burn. Be patient, the damaged leaves may drop and be replaced by new leaves. Do make sure the soil around the tree is kept moist at all times. You may want to fertilize the Holly with Espoma Holly Tone in late fall or very early spring. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
