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 our special slow release fertilizer. Steeds Hollies tolerate pruning well if you want 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.

The Steeds can be used for a number of different designs. Try placing one on each side of your front door for an elegant look. If you have an existing hedge, plant steeds hollies on each end. They will anchor the hedge giving it some character. Get creative, plant your steeds holly then 5 boxwood shrubs, then another steeds holly, etc. Keep the motion going and give it a twist. This is a great shrub for building medium size hedges. Plant each shrub 3-5 feet on center for creating a hedge.

There are many factors that affect a plant. Weather, soil conditions, watering conditions, animal and pest damage, etc. Since we are shipping live plants, timing is critical. Most orders are processed and shipped within 1 - 3 days from checkout.

On occasion a plant order can take up to 5 days for processing. We plan each shipment to avoid your plants sitting in a truck over the weekend if possible. This means orders may be held until the following monday to ensure the shortest ship time. This delay will guarantee that your plants arrive the highest quality possible. Plants that specify shipping at different seasons will be shipped when they become available. ex. ships fall
