How To Care

Be sure to choose the appropriate location for your Compact Japanese 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.

Always Perfect

Third purchase from Planting Tree and couldn't be happier. I had planted a couple of these holly bushes from a local nursery for the start of my hedge. When I couldn't get any more locally, I turned to the Planting Tree. These shrubs, for the same price are significantly fuller, greener and larger and arrive on my door step in about two days. Now I can spend my time, preparing the spot for my plants rather than running around for days looking for just the right one.
