Grace Hybrid American Holly  

Our production is focused on development a quality hardy field liner. This starts with our healthy parent plants to take cuttings from.

These winter cuttings are rooted in our greenhouse in 4-6 weeks with bottom heat.

In the spring, they are transplanted into raised beds on 6-8" centers. These raised beds are shaded during the summer and are covered in plastic to protect them the first winter.

Holly plants in the fieldAfter 2 growing seasons in raised beds they are transplanted again into fields where they will grow until harvested for sale.

We line out over 2000 hollies per year and currently have over 20,000 in our fields.

We do not use pots in our production because we feel transplanting develops stronger, more fibrous root systems and eliminates spiraling roots which may girdle the trunk (sometimes many years after the plant has been sold).

6 foot and 7 foot finished hollies are what our customers request most often. These are harvested with truncated "Caretree" tree spades and shipped in 24 or 28" wire baskets.

Rows and Rows of Plants to choose fromOptimum transplanting time is late summer or early fall, after new growth has hardened.

COLLECTORS: Call us for limited quantity of specific cultivars.
