Why are my Holly tree's leaves all turning yellow?
I have a holly tree (it has produced berries in the past). It is planted in the ground in well drained soil. It is in shade in the morning and sunshine later in the afternoon. Up until this year is has had wonderful dark green spiky leaves. Now, all the leaves are lime green and the ones on the end of the branches are very yellow. If there were some dark green ones I would be calmer. I know that evergreen does not mean everlasting and I should expect some leave drop with colour change. But this is the whole tree not a few leaves. There is a very small amount of leaf miner tracts but I would say 3 to 5 leaves in the whole tree are affected. Please can you advise me if there is anything I can do or is my Holly very sick? Please help.
I live in Abingdon, Oxfordshire.
