Micron® Holly Shrub Pollination
We carry male and female hollies at our nursery, and you will need both to produce berries on the female plant. However, hollies are hard to tell apart when they are not fruiting, and we can’t guarantee whether you will receive a male or female. For best results, we suggest planting in groups to enjoy berries on the female plants and lush greenery on both year-round.
Planting & Care
2. Watering: Water regularly during the first growing season, about once per week or when your evergreen’s surrounding soil is dry. Check for soil dryness about 2 to 3 inches down. If the soil is dry, it’s time to water. However, once the plant is established, the watering frequency may be reduced, depending on your soil’s needs.
3. Fertilizing: Feed your plant in early spring and again in early fall with an all-purpose fertilizer or an evergreen-specific fertilizer.
4. Pruning: Prune as needed for your desired shape.
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.
