Holly Bushes Losing Leaves in the Summer
I have five very large holly bushes, 7 to 8 feet tall. One of them is losing an inordinate amount of leaves--this has occured in the current summer months. Can you explain this situation--is the plant diseased? Can it affect my other holly bushes? What should I do?

This usually indicates that the plants are stressed. How hot has it been? With much of the country suffering from severe heat, this would certainly be a contributing factor. Are there any other symptoms (i.e. leaf yellowing or browning, etc.)? Have you inspected for pests? Let us know and we can be of more help.
