Standard Holly turned yellow

Zone Sk8 7bb | Smokiecheshire1307 added on August 23, 2019 | Answered

Our standard holly has turned yellow. Its trunk and branches hardly have any leaves, but it has a few berries. Is it pot bound or over/under watered?

It certainly could be rootbound. If it has spent more than a year in container without root pruning, then it may be time to do so, while giving it a fresh batch of compost, or nutrients.

1/4 cup of DOLOMITIC LIME and teaspoon of WETTABLE SULFUR will help to keep away any infections during the year. Use this treatment once, or twice per year.
