The Common Holly (Ilex aquifolium) is a popular hedging choice for a variety of reasons.  As a native, British hedging evergreen species, its attractions are that it is relatively slow-growing, an average of 30cm (1ft) of height growth each year, so litle 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 hedging 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. 

How many Holly hedging trees do I need?
We recommend planting 6 plants per metre using the double staggered hedge method

See What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Common Holly Hedging Plants.

Hi Alan, I have just realised that I can't put a testimonial onto your website but please feel free to quote me.  The hedging arrived, swiftly and in very good condition. I am impressed how healthy they are  and that they are a good size.  I understand the surcharge to our postcode and your prices are competitive so I would definitely use your company again and recommend you to every gardener. I will try and send a photo in situ, when the snow clears. Margaret 0115 

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)

Holly is not a particularly light demanding hedge tree species and so using it to fill gaps in hedges will be ok. Should you have any doubts about local conditions, plant in a pot and allow the tree to establish and grow more before planting in the hedge.  

Delaying Planting Cell Grown Trees
If you cannot plant straight away, take the trees out of the packaging and stand upright next to each other in a sheltered location outside. November to March, no need to water unless they start to dry out. 

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
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. 

Second line of hedging or staggered row 
We recommend planting the second line of trees 25cm or 10 inches away from the first if using the staggered hedging approach. Consider buying 10% more than you need and plant the spares elsewhere so you have immediate replacements for damaged or diseased trees.

Hedge Protection
For all hedging protection please view the Tree Extra section and 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.

You would think that thorny plants would put rabbits off from eating them however this is not the case. They are happy to take the pain regardless of the cost (sounds like rabbits would be suited to marriage) 

Hedge Growth Rates

Using Bark or wood chip mulch for hedging trees
Mice like to use this as a nest/home/holiday retreat and they eat the bark (especially Beech). Periodically check for damage below the mulch or bark layer. Alternatively use gravel or plastic sheeting as a method of keeping weeds.

Adding Fragrance And Colour To Your Hedge.
Honeysuckle (Lonicera periclymenum) is a very popular addition to any garden due to the strong fragrance, splash of colours and interest it generates from other wildlife. Click the link to find out more.
