: : How should Ilex bushes be pruned? I never pruned them since I planted them three years ago. They grew very big, but this year for the first time I noticed that some of the leaves became yellow. They fall if I touch them. Should I prune them now, in May? They also have new growth. I would appreciate any help I can get. Thank you.
How do I prune ilex bushes, or should I at all? I have six of them and I never pruned them since I planted them three years ago. They are big and dense but this year I noticed thet they started to turn yellow( not completely but some branches. They do have new growth, however. I thought it might be from too much rain. Shall I prune them and if so when? now or in the fall? I appreciate an answer. Thank you.
