why are foster holly's so touchy? What is best way to plant them? Is the root system more sensitive than other holly?

I don't know that Foster holly is any more sensitive than other hollies. Like most hollies, Foster holly does best in a reasonably good garden soil where it can receive some water during dry summer months. The soil pH should be on the acid side. While it grows best in full sun, it will do well in medium shade. If you're having trouble with Foster hollies, it may be that the soil doesn't drain well or that you are planting it too deeply. It should be planted at the same soil depth as it was growing in the container and then watered deeply once each week for the first summer. Hope this answers your question!
