How To Care for your new Oakland™ Holly

Be sure to choose the appropriate location for your Oakland Holly.  As long as you avoid extreme temperatures you can plant your Holly almost any time of the year.  

Hollies tolerate full sun to part sun.  They prefer a slightly acidic soil, but tend to adapt just about any well draining soil.   After planting, adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch will help keep the soil moist.  Mulching is highly recommended in cooler zones to protect the plant's roots in winter as well.  Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease.  Water your Holly deeply a couple times a week for the first few months.  After your Hollies are established, they only need watered during hot, dry spells.   Fertilize in spring with a slow release fertilizer for broad leaf evergreens.   Oakland Hollies don't require pruning, but they tolerate it well if you prefer to keep them a certain size or shape.  Heavy pruning is best reserved for late winter or early spring. 

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants.  Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success.  Mites and scale are insects that can occasionally affect Hollies.  These can be treated with horticultural oil. For severe infections the pesticide Bonide is recommended.   Avoid saturated soils to prevent fungal issues in Hollies.  


Planting Directions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.  


Planting a shrub digging the hole

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

The plants look healthy and were very well packed. Our landscaper couldn't find these locally so we decided to order them online. So far, we are very pleased with our purchase.

Beautiful 2-3 foot holly's
My holly's are beautiful. They were all very healthy looking but I did get the extra warranty just in case. They came packaged nicely. The only thing I would suggest is to put arrows on which side is up because the FedEx person put them on my porch upside-down.

I looked at my garden center where I live and they wanted 200 dollars for one tree. They were much larger but I needed 10. So I ordered these and I am very happy. They were 3 feet tall.

Can the Oakland Holly be kept in a plant container on a screen in porch?
Francine H on Apr 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These get pretty large so I don't think they would be ideal for a container. They also need a good bit of sun and prefer full sun. If your porch gets a good bit of sun, the steeds holly may be a better choice. https://www.theplantingtree.com/steeds-holly.html
Purchased and planted the Oakland Holly in front of my house for a privacy hedge in the late spring this year. They are starting to grow, should I slightly trim to promote growth or leave them alone this year?
A shopper on Sep 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Personally I would leave them alone this year. If they need a little trim go ahead and do that in spring when you fertilize. You can still fertilize this year to promote growth. Just don't wait too long as you don't want new growth coming when freezing temps arrive.
What is the spacing pattern when planting oakland holly as a privacy barrier?
A shopper on Jan 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 6-10 feet on center would make a nice privacy barrier.
when is the best time to plant this tree?
Dallas B on Oct 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As long as the ground isn't frozen and temps aren't hot you can really plant most evergreens anytime. Now is a great time to plant the Oakland Holly.
How long will it take to reach 12 ft tall?
A shopper on Sep 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 4-5 years depending on the conditions such as sunlight and soil.
