baby holly transplant

Dec 11, 2019

Wanted to give you an update on my baby holly transplant! She’s doing well. I think she will make it…only time will tell! She – I think it’s a she, but could be a he – doesn’t look so good right now, but below ground, it seems that her roots have taken hold. Which is a good thing!

I’m at the point right now, where I water once a week. Just started this week (Monday). On December 30, I start watering once a month. In order for me to remember, I have marked it on the calendar. Once the “once a month” watering starts, it won’t be so hard to remember, just at the end of the month or the beginning of “next” month, I need to get out there and water it.

Here are some more holly’s I found that need to be transplanted. I will be transplanting in the spring!

I might put them out by the interstate fence…the deer will love it when they get bigger! And, if there are enough, the trees could act as a sort of sound barrier between us and the interstate. Not that they will totally block or absorb the sound, but anything helps…right? The way the interstate curves coming down the mountain…the trucks can be heard from the top of the mountain all the way to the bottom.

Well…there’s two of the three in that area that need to be transplanted! I just realized that two of the three photos I took are the same. So, the next chance I get, I will work on the third photo and include it!

All in all, I have 6 more holly’s to transplant. I think, the area I want to put them there is enough room. At some point, if I can, when I find more, I will probably have to sell them. But I’m not worried about that right now!

  • With all the holly’s I have on the property – including myself – I might name this plot of land “Holly Land” LOL!

Friendship like the holly tree.

The holly is dark when the rose briar blooms,

but which will bloom most constantly?”

Hope you have a great day!
