Holly Bush

Anonymous added on May 7, 2015 | Answered

I have a holly bush that is very large, and in December I noticed that it was coming up out of the ground at the roots on the back side and falling forward. I straightened it up and put more soil around it and tied it with rope secured to the deck, which is behind it. Recently, I untied it and sure enough it fell over again. I am trimming it down and will try to replant it. Any further suggestions or ideas as to why this happened? I appreciate your thoughts.
