The Q&A Archives: Holly Bush

Question: Will a holly bush grow in a clay pot?
I have relandscaped and have a beautiful holly bush that I have no place for.

Answer: Most plants will adapt to growing in containers providing there is adequate drainage and you tend to its water and nutrient needs. If yours is a full-sized holly, it's stay in a container may only be temporary. If it's a dwarf, it can remain in a container for all of its life. Water your plant often enough to keep the soil moist but not soggy wet and feed during the growing season with a half- to quarter-strength dilution of fertilizer. Plants in containers require more attention than those planted in the ground, but they can be just as happy if you provide for its needs.
