Q.It’s +100 Egress In Texas, Green Leaves Are Drying & Fallling In Droves. Too Much Water, Not Enough Water?

Zone 76102 | yrubenstein added on June 29, 2022 | Answered

These are planted in pots. I water every morning at about 10:00. Am I over watering, under watering or are the Nellie’s just in distress because of the direct western sun?

I am guessing that you mean Nellie R Stevens Holly. If this is the case, then you are within their hardiness range. They are also quite drought resistant. They will not do so well with overwatering, however.

Be sure that the soil dries, very thoroughly, down to about 4-6 inches between watering. This will ensure that the root zone close to the soil can complete the normal processes.
