Growing Holly Bush

Anonymous added on May 6, 2011 | Answered

I have a holly plant now in my garden, transplanted from my parent's garden last season. I first discovered it in a forested area of their property about 10 or 15 years ago. I don't know who planted it or how long ago. My point is that it is quite old; however, it is only about 3 cm tall and has only two leaves! I don't ever remember it being any bigger. I would like to really get it going, if possible. Could you help me? It is now in a partly shaded area of the garden.

Sounds awfully small for such an old plant. You may be better off propagating another plant from it or rethink its current position in the garden. Here is an article or two that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/holly/transplant-holly-bushes.htm
