Answer: Watering everyday can damage the roots of your hollies so you'll need to adjust your watering regime. Water deeply every 3-4 days in hot weather, once a week in cooler weather. Keeping the soil too moist can suffocate the roots because you drive out oxygen when you keep the soil too wet. The problem with the leaves turning white is probaby due to lack of iron in the soil. Apply Ironite in amounts as recommended on the package, and reduce your water applications as suggested above and your hollies should recover. Good luck with your shrubs!
