Caring for Dwarf Burford Holly

Be sure to choose the appropriate location for your Dwarf Buford 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.
