Sun exposure

Plant your Holly in an area with full to partial sun – at least 4 hours of sunlight daily.


Fertilization isn’t required for your Holly, but you can apply an evergreen fertilizer in the spring as needed.


Oak Leaf Hollies prefer full to partial sun, so plant in an area with 4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day, along with well-drained soil.

Dig the hole as deep as and approximately twice the width of the root ball. Holding the tree, carefully place it into the hole and make sure that the roots are not curling upwards. Backfill the soil, water to settle the roots, and cover the entire planting area with an organic mulch.


Once the roots are established, your Oak Leaf Holly will not need much supplemental watering. Be sure to inspect the tree and surrounding soil for extreme dryness during extended winter dry spells and water if necessary.


We recommend not fertilizing unless your Oak Leaf begins losing its dark green color due to a lack of nutrients. If necessary, just a tablespoon of balanced fertilizer (labeled 12-12-1- sprinkled on top of the ground around the tree will suffice.
