|It's Easy to Plant your American Holly
Specific Directions for American Holly
Plant your American Holly tree in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. For a hedge or privacy screen plant your American Hollies about five feet apart. Make sure that your American Holly doesn't sit in a low area of the yard that collects standing water.
American Hollies prefer slightly acidic soil, but will grow well in various soil types, even soil that's sandy in heavy in clay. Add organic material to your soil to lighten the texture and improve drainage. Keep your soil moist until your tree is established. Once American Holly Trees are established they're drought tolerant and only need extra water during dry spells.
Once a year in the early Spring fertilize your American Holly Tree with a slow release fertilizer for an acid loving shrub like Holly-tone. Small white flowers bloom every Spring, and turn into bright red berries in the Fall that last through the Winter months.
|Step 1 - Dig Your Hole
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your American Holly.
|Step 2 - Place Your Plant
Next, separate the roots of your American Holly gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
|Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
