I have 8 5' holly bushes along the back fence. They have been there now for 2-5 years. They are drying out and turning brown, help! I live in SE Mich.

Hollies don't usually develop diseases so I think the problem is with the roots - either under or overwatering. Wish I knew which! Water your hollies deeply once each week all through the growing season and watch for new growth. If the new growth is healthy, the shrubs will recover and will replace the browing leaves. Let's hope for the best!
