Answer: New growth is a good sign. It sounds as though our hollies took their time in becoming established. It might be that the planting site just doesn't suit them at all. Moving them shouldn't hurt them, especially if their new homes have well draining soil. I'd move them now, before the weather gets hot. Dig the new holes first, then dig your hollies up and move them quickly so their roots don't have a chance to dry out. Plant them at the same soil level as they were growing before and be sure to water them in well after planting to help settle the soil. To ensure they establish quickly, water them deeply once each week during the growing season. Best wishes with your hollies.
