Q.How can I control overgrowth holly bushes?

Zone Southern Virginia | Ines added on May 29, 2014 | Answered

I have 6 holly bushes planted in a circle in front of my house. They are spreading and I can’t kill the overgrowth. I have considered cutting everything down and planting roses. What should I do?

Of course, it's your yard, and if you want to pull out the holly and plant roses instead, that's a perfectly reasonable choice. However, you should be able to discipline the holly into the appearance you want from them by pruning.
