Q.Sick Holly Bushes

Anonymous added on May 16, 2014 | Answered

Have a Blue Prince and a Blue Princess holly. They are very sparse and sickly looking, especially the princess. In the past they have not been like this. What can I do to improve their health? They have very few leaves and are yellowish in color. They had very few berries this winter.

I would suspect possibly chlorosis.
