Holly Bush Trimming

Anonymous added on April 15, 2011 | Answered

About 2-3 weeks ago I cut about a 5-inch branch from the top of a very healthy holly bush. I noticed that the branch and surrounding two branches turned brown, like it was dying, and the leaves fall off when touched. The rest of the bush is fine. What did I do wrong, and will the entire bush die?

It's possible that your shears may have had oil or some other chemical on them. Just a thought.
