How To Care

Be sure to choose the appropriate location for your Dwarf Bufordi Holly. As long as you avoid extreme temperatures and the ground isn't frozen you can plant your Holly almost any time of the year.

This holly thrives in full to part sun and prefers a slightly acidic soil. Although it does tend to adapt just about any well-draining soil. After planting, adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch will help keep the soil moist. Mulching is highly recommended in cooler zones to protect the plant's roots in winter as well. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Water your Holly deeply a couple times a week for the first few months. After Hollies are established, they only need watered during hot, dry spells. Fertilize in spring with a slow release fertilizer for broad leaf evergreens. This holly does not require pruning, but they tolerate it well if you prefer to keep them a certain size or shape.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by keeping you Holly healthy. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. Hollies rarely have issues with pests or disease, but here are a few issues that occasionally affect Hollies. Mites and scale can be treated with horticultural oil. For severe infections the pesticide Bonide is recommended. Avoid saturated soils to prevent fungal issues in Hollies.

Landscape Ideas

The versatile Dwarf Burfordi Holly is a formidable evergreen shrub for the landscape. This holly looks just right in any type of garden, bed, or border. Its naturally rounded, fat shape looks stunning contrasting something like a thin sky pencil holly. This is a great shrub for building an easy to maintain hedge. Plant 3 feet apart for a tight hedge.

Arrived in better than expected condition!

The Dwarf Burford Holly shrubs arrived healthy,soil still moist and a true 3 gallon size. I most certainly got what i paid for. I did find several broken off branches from the hollies. Even so, the plants were very full.

Great experience

The plants came as scheduled and looked great. The planting and watering instructions were aweome. I never know if I’m doing it right, and the instructions made the process very clear. The plants have been inthe ground for over a week and look like they’ve been there forever. I would definitely buy from you again and have already referred a friend.
