Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant your Greenleaf American Holly Shrub in moist, well-draining soil that has full to partial sunlight with a minimum of 4 to 8 hours of sunlight each day. Dig a hole 2-3 times the depth and width of the rootball, place your Holly, and then backfill the soil without compacting too tightly.

2. Watering: Water your Greenleaf American Holly Shrub often, ensuring the soil stays moist until it is well established. Once established, you should only need to water during dry periods.

3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your Greenleaf American Holly annually in the early spring with slow release fertilizer for acid-loving shrubs like Holly-Tone.
