No Holly Berries This year, why?

Zone Rockville Centre, NY 11570 | Anonymous added on November 2, 2019 | Answered

I have a huge Holly tree which produces tons of red berries each year, and the birds love them. This year I do not see any. Can you advise why I did not get berries this year? I did not do anything different in my yard this year. Thank you for any help!

It seems that your problem may be related to weather or pruning. Weather that affects the flowers and causes them to drop means no berries. Also pruning too soon or an early freeze could have cost you the flowers. Read more in this article:
