Hello there. I have a ILEX aquifolium Aurea Marginata in A large pot. I have re potted it and in a large pot with general purpose compost and added some bedding plants. Now the holly don't look too healthy, the leaves are going brown and shriveling up an so are the berries. Can you help please



Berries going brown is not an issue at this time of year, but did you damage the roots when you transferred it from pot to new pot? The only thing you can do is to keep it well watered, don't let it dry out at all for a couple of weeks - if you broke the fine, water seeking roots, they need to regrow before the plant can cope with a more normal watering routine.
