Dry and brown leaves will lead to lost of plant. Acid formula fertilizer can used to fertilize. We should water well in summer. We can spray anti-desiccant like wilt-Pruf to avoid drying. Throughout the summer we can make the plant covered.

Several reasons shamrock holly leaves turn brown. One is watering, make sure the soil is damp, they like water. Another reason is the temperature, if it is too cold the leaves will brown. Spider mites turn the leaves brown too. Properly prune and care for your shamrock holly and it will do fine.

The first thing you need to find out is if they are getting too much direct sunlight and it may be giving the leaves a sunburn and if it happens enough times it will kill the plant. The other thing is make sure you arent giving it too much water they don't need much.

It sounds like you have spider mites. Check with your local garden center for a good treatment- Mite-B-Gon is well known. However, if there is chance your plant was exposed to salt (as can happen if you live in a snow area where salt is used on the roads) that will cause poisoning of the leaves. Repot.

The temperature may be a factor in the leaves turning brown on your shamrock holly. If your holly is too cold the leaves will turn brown. Try protecting them from the cold. Another factor might be watering. Holly like to be in damp soil so make sure they are getting enough water.
