Should Brown Holly Leaves Be Trimmed

Question From: N. Butler - Grosse Pointe, Michigan, United States
Q: Hi Nancy, Many of my holly leaves are brown. Is this winter burn? Should I trim these damaged areas or let nature take its course? I have grown holly in my garden for years, and I have never run into this problem, but then again, I have never experienced a winter like this one!

A: Nancy, I will be writing about this next week. For now be patient. Best Nancy
