Holly - yellowing leaves with spots

Posted: 23/04/2017 at 11:23

Hi Steve, sorry I missed those yesterday. I agree, a lot of yellow ones. Large plants can be very difficult to establish compared to small ones. More possibility of wind rock, more leaves in proportion to roots.


Are they totally root firm and kept moist? (but not drowned) See what others think but I think this is more a case of struggling to get established than of disease. The affected leaves look like those that fall off all hollies but more of them

Celandine problem

I'm surprised to hear celandine has not come into flower yet. All those I'm aware of have been and gone and well on the way to disappearing for the rest of the year

those can be saved but poor looking specimens at this stage

Nothing like the photo!!!

I'd send them those photos, demand your money back, then set about saving the plants.


Loosen the roots and pot them into something bigger, cut of the straggliest bits and get them somewhere light.


Don't feed them til they're growing again, don't let them dry out but don't keep them wet.


Good luck

Overgrown garden with bats - what can I do?

Posted: 22/04/2017 at 20:30

Bats fly around everywhere, what is the nature of your overgrowth? Bats don't roost at ground level (except in caves etc) you won't find them in residence in the nettle patch or an unpruned shrub.


I have a Pipistrelle nursery roost in the house roof most years. If we wanted to re-roof we wouldn't do it while they were there and we'd leave access for them to come back for the next breeding season. You wouldn't be expected to live in a leaking house. There are ways around it all. Bats aren't pests, they're part of our rapidly diminishing native wildlife. 


I wonder if the owners have left a wild area because they are interested in wildlife. It's a good way to go.

I've taken mine right back to the lowest leaves but not sure that's what should be done.


I'm not a proper gardener, I do as I like

Holly - yellowing leaves with spots

How many leaves are affected. Have you a photo of the plant.


Holly, as all evergreens, doesn't keep its leaves forever. Old ones turn yellow and drop off and new ones grow. A treatment would be feeding to encourage the new growth.
