Hello
I have several coniferous shrubs that are developing "holes" in the foliage, both horizontal and vertical, and wonder how to fix these.

I have heard that you can either close the holes by tying the branches in some way or enclose the shrub firmly with netting through which it will continue to grow. If these are the correct solutions, could anyone explain how to carry them out? If not, what is the alternative? If there is a site online, especially with a video, that shows how to do this, that would be particularly interesting.

I will attach photos if I can.

Thank you.
