Just moved into new home.
We notice eary spring that he hollys planted were not in the ground and we replanted them using the planting soil,etc. In the last 2 weeks they have turn brown lost their leaves and we have pulled them up and planted elsewhere hoping they will come back.
When can we replace these 5 hollys. I think they got to much water but the nandias have done alright.

The best time to plant is late winter/early spring or late summer/early fall. Planting in the midst of summer heat is stressful on plants and requires more diligence in terms of monitoring soil moisture. That's alot of moving for the holly in a short time frame, so there roots might not withstand. But good luck!
