Most potted shrubs will survive outdoors during winter, especially holly bushes; however, you can move them to a protected area, if desired, until the return of warm weather. The following article should be of some help to you:

There is no standard rooting hormone for holly. The real point of rooting hormone is actually more to be a fungicide. This will prevent rot from setting in. Any rooting hormone your local nursery carries will be fine for rooting holly cuttings.

Q. What Do I Do With My Female Holly Plant Until Spring Arrives?

It is winter in CT, I received a holly plant as a special Christmas gift. It has berries making it a female. My friend kept it dry and protected from the elements since October. Presently, a storm is on its way and I’m “protecting” it by keeping it in my car and will not be watered. .

If it has been kept indoors, it will not be able to survive the cold outside because it has not been allowed to go dormant. You will need to bring it into somewhere warmer and keep it there for the winter and treat it like a houseplant.

If it has been kept outside, it has gone dormant and should be fine in the car for a few days, though I would wrap a blanket around the base to keep the roots a stable temperature and you need to remove it ASAP if the temp in the car will rise above 40F. It will be ok for a few days without water.

Once the storm is passed, place it in a sheltered location, like against the foundation of a building or in a shed or garage. If it will be in a location where it will not get water, water it once every two weeks. It will not need much water in the winter while it is dormant.

Q. Holly Shrub

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:

Q. About Holly Bush

If goats ate all the leaves off my holly bush, what is the chance it will live, and is their anything that I can do to help it survive?

Answered by

There is a pretty good chance that the plant will survive, as long as it only happens once. If it happens repeatedly, the bush will have a harder time recovering and regrowing the leaves, but 1x should not cause a healthy plant to die.
