Holly Shrub

Karen added on January 15, 2011 | Answered

I bought a holly bush at Christmas time and want to plant it outside in spring. I have it in the house, watering but the leaves look dry and are beginning to fall off. How do I keep it until it is time to plant?

You will need to place it back into a place where it is cold but sheltered, like a garage or an unheated patio.

While this article is about live Christmas trees, the advice in it applies to your holly bush as well:
