These fabulous standard holly trees are perfect for the garden, balcony or patio. Planted either side of a doorway or arch to give an elegant entrance or positioned as a decorative focal piece in the garden, these evergreen trees will bring pleasure for many years. With evergreen, glossy foliage edged with a golden yellow, the holly bears white flowers in the spring and red berries in the winter, which are simply loved by birds. These trees are perfect for growing in containers and very easy to care for, just requiring regular water and occasional pruning. Ideal for all year round interest in your garden. Average overall height 75cm (29in), head of foliage approx 30cm (12in). Ceramic pots and gift wrapping not supplied.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
When growing Holly in patio containers, use a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Repot at its original soil level and firm well into the new container. Water well and position in full sun or semi shade. Alternatively, plant Holly standards directly into borders in any moist, free draining soil.
More Info
Feed and water container-grown plants regularly. As plants increase in size they will require repotting into increasingly larger pots. Prune Holly standards to shape while the plants are young. Prune in summer, removing any damaged stems and trimming the head of the standard to a spherical shape. In autumn, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of border grown plants. Avoid mounding mulch up around the stem as this may cause it to rot.

Caution: Harmful if eaten.
