Ilex Aquifolium ‘Alaska’ (English Holly) Rootballed, 80-100cm

£19.80

Glossy upright evergreen shrub, with prickly foliage which becomes clothed in red berries in winter.  Very hardy.

This plant makes a fantastic formal hedge.

Each plant is 80-100cm.  Plant at 2 or 3 per metre, to form an instant waist-high hedge.

Planting

The plants should be planted and thoroughly watered as soon as possible after delivery, to avoid drying out.  Rootballed plants should be planted with the hessian sack still in place (the hessian will rot away in the ground).  Do not remove this hessian sack.

Feeding & Aftercare

We recommend to plant with Westland Bone Meal (which acts as a root stimulant) and 6X Fertiliser (a long acting fertiliser). The plants should also be fed from Springtime onwards with Chempak No. 2.
