|This eagleston holly has been planted about 2 years ago. It's noticeably thin in the center with growth mosly on the tip of bare branches. Could it be fixed ? If i prune the periphery to stimulate central growth, there will be no leaves left. The soil around it is caliche though other trees are doing great.

|I think that you have to prune in the center to stimulate more growth there.

|The caliche might be the problem - this information from our database says they prefer slightly acidic soil:
Eagleston Holly (Ilex x attenuata 'Eagleston')
Plants growing in the wrong pH can't access the nutrients in the soil.
