Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Greenleaf American Holly Shrub in an area that receives full to partial sunlight (4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).
When you're ready to plant, dig a hole that's about 2 to 3 times the width of the root ball (and just as deep), place your Holly, and backfill the soil. Add organic material to your soil to lighten the texture and improve drainage. Finally, mulch the surrounding soil to preserve moisture and water once planting is complete.
2. Watering: Keep your soil moist until your shrub is established. Once your Holly Shrubs are established, they're drought tolerant and only need extra water during dry spells. Until then, we recommend checking the surrounding soil for dryness (use your finger to check the soil about 2 inches down).
3. Fertilizing: Each year, fertilize your Greenleaf American Holly in early spring with a slow-release fertilizer for an acid-loving shrub (something like Holly-Tone).
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
