I have two male and one female berry producing English holly bushes .
I would like to remove completely the male closest to the female , but the other male is about 6 - 8 feet away from the female . Is this wise ? Don,t feel confident about moving the female which is a well established tree about 8 ft tall . Thanks Jim Barr
I looked up several references and found a distance of 50 to 300 feet as the maximum spacing to ensure pollination. Your plan to put them 6-8 feet apart is fine. Keep in mind the maximum mature height and spread when spacing your hollies. Six feet may be too close if you have one of the tree varieties.
