Q.Black Shoots on a Holly Bush

Anonymous added on May 19, 2011 | Answered

We have a tall holly bush about 5 years old, which grew from the wild in our garden. Last winter was the first year it had any berries on it. Today we noticed that there are many flowers on it, and the sprouting out from the centre of the flowers are small black leaves. This presumably is the new growth. What can we do about it? Apart from the black leaves, the bush looks healthy.
