The Q&A Archives: Planting Blue Hollys

Question: How far apart may I plant the Blue Girl Holly from the Blue Boy Holly? I have planted them about 75 ft one in the front side yard and one in the backyard. Blue Girl in the southwest corner of the yard and the Blue Boy in the northeast.

Answer: This might be a little far apart. Hollies are usually planted next to each other or in a cluster -- nearby so the pollinators can easily fly from one to the other. You could try it and see and add another closer to the female later on if need be. You could also check if any neighbors have one growing closer to the female. Good luck with your hollies!
