Lovely TT. will you plant them together?

Hi Grandmage .. thanks...
Not sure yet ... I have a specific place where I want to plant one Ilex....

and maybe I would get a good size shrub more quickly by planting the three together ...

Looks like Conker is going to be busy looking after you new plants then Terra.

Hi Terra
I hope the ilex helped cheer you up after your visit to the Dentist. What a great helper Conker is. Do you think he could have a word with my girls. Their idea of watering the plants is completely different!! lol

19 Nov, 2011

 

Lovely picture of Conker,it must be nice having a helper like him. I also like ilex as it gives you some cheery colour through the winter and with a bonus of berries too.

19 Nov, 2011

 

Hi Rose ... Thanks ... Conker loves to help :o)

Yes, I'm getting more and more interested in Ilex ... especially the variegated ones... I have several in my front garden and back garden. You're right about the year-round interest...

19 Nov, 2011

 

Conker is very keen isn't he...I love the hollies...you can never have too many can you?!

20 Nov, 2011

 

Hi Karen ...
Conker is more than keen to do LOTS of gardening... ;o)

These hollies might not look much in the photo, but over recent years I've planted several Ilex around my gardens, and am very pleased with them.

The large ones are pricey, but these from the market were inexpensive, and are very healthy and strong. I'll enjoy watching them grow :o)

20 Nov, 2011

 

Yes, I love mine TT...same var as this I think, although mine look paler. I do love hollies. Do you remember last year I bought a really expensive standard one and it died? It might have been the cold, but I fear it was already dying when I bought it as later on I saw some young ones and they looked 'different'...healthier. Silly me....learn my lessons the hard way TT!

20 Nov, 2011

 

Hi Terra....nice young plants...love the new assistant too..:)))

21 Nov, 2011
