I moved into my townhouse a year ago, and the only plant in the 'backyard' is a very sad holly bush. The spot it is in is pretty sunny (shady in the mornings only). What would you recommend in order to nurse this bush back to health? And what kinds of plants/flowers are ideal to plant in the surrounding area?

Your holly bush may simply be in need of a good pruning. As for plants that thrive in sunny locations, there are many (most of which do not mind occasional morning shade).
