Availability Average 2-3 Week Delivery


The English holly is a widely grown evergreen plant which can be used for hedging as well as medium sized tree. The spiky leaves are ideal for use when needing secure boundaries to your garden. Bright red berries are usually produced in autumn on female plants when a male is planted within a mile or so. The leaves of this Holly are dark green with a glossy surface and are held throughout the year. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee the sex of our plants and if you require berries we suggest one of the named varieties.

Common names, English Holly

Supplied in a small 9cm square pots

All our plants are grown with the utmost care; with a little attention and loving care when planting they will grow to be the perfect specimen.
Here is what to do:-
On arrival unwrap you plant/s immediately taking care not to damage any branches.
After its long journey your plant may be thirsty and need a drink, so stand in a bucket of water for a couple of hours (don?t leave too long) out of the sun and sheltered, but especially frost free.
Plant as soon as possible by removing the plant pot.
DO NOT tease the roots out or damage them in any way!
Dig a hole twice the width of the pot and place your new plant in level with the soil.
Fill the hole back in with loose soil and water in very well.
Keep watering every couple of days until established.
