Since these are pollinated by bees, the male can be within a quarter of a mile, and still pollinate the female. So, as long as you plant the male within a quarter of a mile away from the female then you should see berries. Here is an article for more information on the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/holly/winterberry-holly-care.htm
