Already have Winterberry Hollies in your landscape and notice a decrease in the profusion of berries? These hollies need a Male counterpart to produce. If there aren't enough Male pollinating plants in the area, or if they are too far away, your Female plants will be affected. Some hollies can even benefit from a nearby Early or Late blooming Male pollinator! Check out this handy guide to Winterberry pollination for more information about bloom time and recommended pollinators.

This year we will be carrying the following varieties of Male verticilata hollies:

Liner deliveries have already begun arriving and we expect to bring in new material through May this season. Of course, the weather will play a major factor as to when things get rolling. Fields will be sub-soiled and tilled prior to planting, a job that cannot be performed in wet conditions. Digging of existing stock will happen as close to the same time that liner delivery is expected. It will be a busy season as more product than ever is available for sale to persons in the trade. Sales are expected to increase based on these numbers and the quality of our product, which is becoming recognized by our customers. The spring season promises to be the best yet for Trent Hill Farm & Nursery.

The nursery is pretty incredible this time of year with all the different shades of flowering plant material. The Cherry trees are the first ones to pop (followed closely by the Pear) and while it is not quite the scene in DC, approaching the farm by Route 2 south is truly a treat for our visitors and for our own. Even the Capital Gazette wanted to let others know about our plants!
