Holly 5ft (150cm) Rootballed (Thin Grade)
These Holly hedge plants are all around 5ft (150cm) in height and are a thin lighter grade where instant screening is not necessary. The price of these reflects the fact that they are not all perfect and identical and some have slight bare patches at the base which may or may not come back in the fullness of time. Notwithstanding this, they are all perfectly healthy and will grow into nice hedges.
They are supplied rootballed which is to say that they are field grown plants that are dug up with a ball of soil around their roots which is wrapped in hessian.
Holly (Ilex Aquifolium) is also known as Common Holly or English Holly and is a very traditional hedging plant having been cultivated for many centuries and being native to the UK. It can be clipped into a dense and prickly formal hedge or allowed to grow more informally. It can also be cut back heavily to rejuvenate an older hedge.
With its prickly green foliage and vibrant red berries, Holly is synonymous with making Christmas wreaths and other festive decorations.
Wild birds favour Holly for nesting sites and its berries are a useful additional food source in the colder months.
Holly is not the fastest growing hedge plant and one can expect 6-9 inches of growth a year. We recommend planting these large Holly hedge plants at a spacing of 2ft (60cm) between plants in a single row (as shown in the picture).
Root balled Holly is tolerant of most soil types although it does not like waterlogged soil. It also grows quite happily in full sunshine and also in partial shade.
