    Steeds Holly Bushes Not Doing Well

    I think Ron's onto the problem. Typically yellow leaves are root issues, either disease or poor drainage causing root rot. His suggestion to have somebody look at them is a good one, but it may be tricky right now. Often there are master gardeners that will help people for free. But with...
