Hi There,

I have a nelly stevens holly planted across the fence. As you can see in the first pic the main branch is long and have growth at the tip but not in the middle. How do i make it grow dense and wide?

Another issue i have is i have some hollys that have bare branches inside but the end has full growth. How do i make them grow dense inside the plant?
