- I can hear my Japanese Holly growing
Has anyone experienced this? My wife was walking the yard the other day and heard a crackling sound coming from our japanese holly. After investigating, we found no insects or anything gnawing on the plants. The only thing we can figure is that it is growing so quickly (we had a very unusual warm spell that has awakened our plants from their winter naps) that we can hear the friction of the waxy new buds as they attempt to open up. Has anyone experienced anything similar and know if it is, in fact, the plant growing or if it's something we need to worry about like mites or other pest?
