|I think part of your question may not have come through completely, however the foliage on your holly should not be turning yellow and falling off. Yellowing and leaf drop could be caused by a variety of factors from planting too deeply to overwatering to overfertilizing to a pest or disease problem. I would suggest you work with your retailer (if it is a new plant) and/or with your county extension to determine what is happening. Once you have a definite diagnosis you can determine how to proceed.
