The Common Holly (Ilex aquifolium) is a popular tree for a variety of reasons.  As a native, British  evergreen tree, its attraction  is that it is relatively slow-growing tree, an average of 30cm (1ft) of height growth each year, so little maintenance required.  Quite commonly, Holly forms part of a mixed native hedge, especially when planted with non-evergreen species, such as Hawthorn, Dog Rose, Hazel, Elder, Blackthorn and Crab Apple, Holly forming the evergreen component.  Holly planted as a pure hedge is simply quite fantastic.  As a wildlife habitat, the orange-red berries are very attractive to birds.  Holly should be trimmed in autumn and also mid summer if required. Holly prefers either full or partial shade and a moist, but not wet-type soil and copes with exposed sites and seaside locations.

Benefits of using our plug plant trees
Our Holly trees are sold as plug plants, in other words the roots are encased in compost. This means that planting can be carried out at any time of the year, provided they are watered in periods of drought, compared to bare-root plants which can only be planted during the plants normal dormant period (November to March).  All of these trees are UK grown, which is important for successful establishment. 

Rabbit  and Deer Protection

See What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Common Holly Trees

Many thanks Alan trees are all here and they look nice and healthy. Will use you again in the future. Regards, Dave 0714

Site Conditions And Evergreen Tree List
Our tree chart details which site conditions suit which trees and also which are evergreen or semi-evergreen.

Feeding Or Fertilizing Hedges
This is a task that can easily be over done. Any nitrogen based fertilizer will do such as 20:20:10 but the longer lasting ones which take 18/24 months are better as they are regulated by the weather and moisture therefore release slowly.

Woodburning Chart
If you are one of those lucky people that lead an eco lifestyle (VERY jealous if you are) and want to buy trees to burn, then maybe our wood burning chart (excel spread sheet) will help you decide. Ash, Eucalyptus Gunnii and Willow are worth looking at for their growth rates and calorific values.

Planting Tool
If you are looking to plant lots of plug plant or cell grown trees (the 10-40cm-ish) size range then maybe you should consider our tree planting tool. Tree planting rates of over 700 per day achievable.

Adding A Bit Of Colour And Attract Wildlife
Honeysuckle (Lonicera periclymenum) is very attractive, fragrant and attracts more wildlife to your garden. A bit on the vigorous side but worth the effort. A great addition to your project.

Tree Spacing
Broadleaf wood planting would be around 3m between each tree. Christmas tree planting for a commercial crop is around 1m.

Factors Detrimental To Cell Grown Trees
Too much/little water, animal Urine, excessive wind exposure (will slow growth), salt spray, frost on new growth, herbicide drift and over application of fertilizer.  


Holly Berries for Ilex aquifolium

Although both sexes of plant produce flowers, it is only the female plant that produce berries. Roughly 80% of the Ilex aquifolium bushes we sell online are female.

Female Holly trees will produce berries at around their second year of growth. The Holly trees we provide are between 12-18 months old (depending when you buy them).
