My inkberry bushes are beginning to turn yellow. I just planted them at the end of April and we've had quite a bit of rain since then. Any suggestions?

Inkberry hollies are native to moist areas so extra rain should not bother them. They do prefer an acid soil, so a higher pH could be the problem, as could overfertilizing them. However, sometimes these shrubs do turn a paler yellow-green during warm weather, so this might be the cause for the change, too. You might want to test your soil to be sure the pH and nutrient levels are adequate.
