Borwn Leaves on Old and New Plants
I planted ten new Azalea plants this spring following the planting instructions on the company's website. The edges of the leaves are turning brown on some, but not the others. I assumed I had done something incorrectly - too much fertilizer, over/under watering, etc. Today, I noticed the edges of my Holly bush leaves were also turning brown. These are mature bushes - about 15 years old and in a separate part of the backyard. ANY advice would be greatly appreciated!!

This could be a number of things--too little or too much water, over fertilizing, leaf scorch (if planted in too much sun), etc. It may help to prune the plants to help rejuvenate it.
