One other question i want to plant a holly hedge in the spring. is it neccesary to plant the male out of sight or will i still get berries if planted with the females ?



I believe that as long as there's a male and female bush within about 100 metres, that's OK, so next to each other - even better!

Out of interest, do you have wild rabbits in your area? If so, worth protecting your young plants as they love holly and will nip them off.

Thanks Dawnsaunt no we don't have rabbits in our area.
