Specific Directions for Soft Touch Holly
Likes full sun, but will take afternoon shade in the south. Plant 2-2 ½ feet apart for a solid hedge, and 3 ½ feet apart if you want differentiation between plants. It will grow happily in most any kind of soil as long as it has good drainage, but it grows fastest in a moist, well-drained, fertile soil. The first season, it needs an inch of water a week, whether from rain or from your hose; after the roots are established, it needs water only during severe drought. 3 to 4 inches of mulch is beneficial.
|Step 1 - Dig Your Hole
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Soft Touch Holly.
|Step 2 - Place Your Plant
Next, separate the roots of your Soft Touch 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.
