I have a long row of Holly Trees which were planted last year. When the holly trees came the roots were in very tight bags made of bags - these bags are not bio-dregradable. When the gardeners planted the trees, they did not take off the bags, I asked them 'should the roots be let out of the bags for them to stretch out once planted, the gardener said 'no, they will be fine'. In the last 3 weeks all of the leaves on the holly trees have turned yellow and fell off the trees leaving just the bare branches. I would appreciate any help as to whether anyone knows should the bags have been taken off the roots before planting and would this be making them die. Thanks.
