what is the best way to feed an Holly tree i have 2 and they are going to BERRY,for the first time,what sort of plant food would be required,please.



If you have a male and a female holly then you don't need to do anything for the female to produce berries... If you don't you can feed like mad - you still won't get berries! So what makes you think they are going to produce berries?

have you berries already forming? if yes then not anything really. the holly should get all it needs from the soil. if you wish to feed it then growmore granules sprinkled and raked in would be ok.

The berries are forming,their will be quite a few.Took a long time for this to happen,thats why i would like to keep it at it`s best.

You don't need to do anything. Hollies grow happily in the wild with no help whatsoever from humans. :)

Thank you all for your advice.

Be aware that the birds may well eat the berries as soon as they are ripe!
