Holly tree yellow leaves

I have a well established Holly tree which has a lot of yellow leaves, at present, it has flowers and new shoots coming through. Do I have a problem? If so what can I do about it

    If possible can you post a photo of these yellow leaves. Some leaves can turn yellow on evergreen shrubs, and that is normal when the leaves come to the end of their lives.

    It is not normal if you have quite a bit of yellowing leaves all round. Again, that could be poor growing conditions, drought or something else.

    Have posted 3 photos, 1 is a general view, another close up of an area and another very close to show the flowers and new growth. It has been very dry weather around here with no serious downfall for 5 to 6 weeks

    They look fine to me. Old leaves will yellow at some stage. But as you say, dry spells can also stress large specimens, so you may see more leaf drop or more yellowing of leaves. Water them using a hose in the early morning or late evenings to be be on the safe side if you have the time, but other than that, looks like a fine specimen to me.
  • Thanks for that, as you can see, it is quite a feature and covers an extention down the garden. Once again, thanks for the help
