The Q&A Archives: American Holly

Question: I have a holly that berried the first year it was planted. It hasn't berried since(3 years). It is covered with blooms right now. Is there a way to artificially pollenate this plant? I don't have a male plant available

Answer: In nature, the holly pollen is moved by flying insects (for example bees) from the male to the female plant. Unfortunately, there is no way to artificially provide pollen without a male pollen source. I'm sorry.
