Planting Blue Maid Holly Tree Pots
Planting Blue Maid Holly tree pots as a hedge is simple, and how you space them depends on how tall you want your hedge to become eventually. For a 3-4’ tall hedge, space your tree pots 12-18” apart, on center (meaning from the center of the truck of each plant). For a 6-8' tall hedge, space the plants 2-3' apart on center. For a 10-12' hedge, space the plants 4-5' apart on center. For more information on planting tree pots, click here.
