Holly Bush Berries


judithchi added on September 26, 2016 | Answered

My shrub is gorgeous and full of bright red berries. I'd love to use them for decorating for the holidays, but it's only September 26! How long do they hold on into the season and, if I cut them now, can they be preserved? I'd love to preserve the greenery also, not just the berries.

This may depend on the variety, but many holly varieties will ripen berries throughout the fall and early winter.

These articles may give you more information on preserving the branches:
