Q.My Holly Is Dying and I Don’t Know Why!
We have two Centennial Girl hollies flanking our front step. One is in great condition, gorgeous green foliage, etc. The other is quite a different story! Most (not all) of the leaves have turned brown, the berries have shriveled up, and it just looks horrible. I have fed it with HollyTone, to no avail. Both trees were planted at the same time, in exactly the same way. Should I be looking for a replacement?

It is hard to tell, but the one with brown leaves may have holly scorch. They do recover from it, but look awful for a few months while the problem runs its course.
