Q. Nellie Stephens Holly Tree

We planted eight holly trees a month ago and several of their leaves are turning yellow and dropping. Any suggestions as to why this is happening and what we can do to make them healthy again?

It could be suffering from shock. Increase watering. Water deeply every time you water them. Also, try adding some root booster fertilizer to the soil. Many nurseries now sell this mix of fertilizer.

Q. Nellie R Stevens Problem

I have a Nellie R Stevens that has developed what looks like small white cups, almost like small popcorn, on some of the trunk and branches. When I removed one, something that looked like blood (dark red or red brown) came out. Can you identify what it might be and how to get rid of it? I cannot seem to be able to id it.
