This Holly seems to have shed a lot of it’s leaves and now looks very sparse. Is it dying? It has sentimental value so I’d really like to save it. Could it be lack of water? It’s been so wet here I didn’t water it but maybe it wasn’t getting enough. I’ve been drenching it for the last few days but I’m not sure if that’s the right thing to do since I don’t know what’s wrong with it. It has slow release fertiliser granules as well as liquid feed when I water it.
Is the pot too small? Would planting it out in the garden revive it? I’ve been reluctant to do that because I’m worried the roots will damage any pipework/foundations. I know Hollies grow big. Also it looks nice at the front of the house in the pot; or at least it did until now.
