: How should Holly bushes be pruned? My husband prunes them and the leaves are getting smaller and smaller-especially on the one that gives the red berries. Would appreciate any help I can get. Thank you.
You don't say what type of holly it is. I suspect that it shouldn't be pruned, especially if it's an evergreen with the pointed leaves. If possible, can you move it to a spot where it won't need to be pruned and can obtain it's natural size?
Here's a site that might be helpful.
