Growing Details

Common Name: Holly
Genus: Ilex
Species: aquifolium
Cultivar: 'Golden King'
Skill Level: Beginner
Exposure: Full sun, Partial shade
Hardiness: Hardy
Soil type: Well-drained/light, Clay/heavy, Acidic, Chalky/alkaline, Sandy

Almost spineless, glossy, dark green leaves on dark purple stems.  It makes a dense, upright tree that is quite slow-growing. Like all common holly varieties, it is a robust plant, ideal for hedges and screens, both inland and by the sea, but also makes a good specimen shrub. It produces small white flowers (male and female usually on separate plants) and, on female plants, showy berries in autumn

When the plants arrive they can be planted in a well dug over trench with rotted manure or any other organic fertilizer (The plants will grow without doing this,but it gives them a better start) .Don't steep in water for longer than 2 hours as this can destroy the roots.
