Planted last fall/winter.
Had a lot of green berries.
But most of them dropped recently.
What is wrong?
Too much water? Not enough water? Leaves looks fine.

Thanks!

Dig down beside the holly and feel the soil about a ft under ground. Feel down to the bottom of the hole, is it too wet or too dry? The plant will need a lot of water the first and second years and need to be watered by hand with a water hose..... The first 3 years are critical for Nellie Stevens when it comes to adaption to the growing environment. Good luck.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
