Holly Bushes Turning Brown

mward added on May 9, 2011 | Answered

My smaller holly bush started turning brown last summer. I trimmed off the 'dead' part last fall, but now that it is spring it is getting worse and the larger bush is now turning brown. I read the possible diseases but none seem to fit what the bushes are doing. Are they goners?
