    Answer This Question

    A:  Fall is best. As long as the ground can be dug then planted. Water it really good at planting time with Espoma Bio Tone in the hole. Just give it water every 2 weeks if you do not get rain. If you have clay soil plant it top of root ball 1” above soil

      A:  Yes they are self pollinating meaning you get berries without a male.

        I ordered twice. First set came severely damaged from improper cold protection and looked like they tossed the plants in the boxes to ship and had broken limbs all over. They also came loose in their boxes. All 3 I ordered had large bark peeling on all trunks from apparent cold damage. HD took the return and gave a 10% discount for reorder. Reordered another 3 and same peeling bark issues but on a much smaller scale. Didn’t want to deal with returning again and repeat of the first time and decided to keep them. If they die HD will guarantee them. Wouldn’t recommend them though. Purchase the unbranded for full price. Those Nellies are top notch, I’ve ordered 6 of those previously and have had no issues. After ordering twice it was apparent why the Baucom’s Nellies were so cheap. Nursery selling damaged subpar product as a “deal” and giving Home Depot a bad rep. Also tags that came with the Hollie’s said they were oak leaf and not Nellie. I would avoid anything Baucom and would not purchase again.

        Good Sized, Poor Conditioned
        Was excited to finally receive it to only be disappointed when opening it. There were two bark splits that were about 3-inches in length and one of the main leads had a old break and it looked terrible. The new growth was coming in, but was did not look health due to the long ship time (about a week to Washington State). Promptly returned.

          Very healthy.
          Bigger than expected. Packaged beautifully. Very healthy with shiny green leaves and red berries. I ordered 2 more!

            Ordered two Nellie Stevens and was SO IMPRESSED with the quality and health of both. They were packaged very well and arrived without a single broken branch. Both of the specimens were about 36"H x 24"W and had multiple branches with new bright green growth. Even after planting, the new growth areas continued to grow beautifully. They've been in the ground for a few weeks and are just what we were hoping for. I'm considering another!

            This is the second Nellie Stevens Holly I ordered. Both trees came in excellent condition, well packaged and around 3 ft tall. Surprised at how healthy they are considering they were shipped across country to California. I will definitely order plants again from Home Depot.

            I’ve been looking for this particular Holly for a while now despite how “common” and “loved” they are. They had 9 healthy looking shrubs, so I purchased and planted them the same day. It’s only been a week, but they all have new growth on them!

            Quality of the Nellie R. Stevens Holly Shrub was excellent, with healthy new growth. Packaging was exceptional with no visable damage to the shrubs. Delivery was timely and professionally done. However, one of the shrubs was noticeably smaller/shorter the the rest. Shrubs were quickly planted and are thriving.

            Shrubs were packed very well and shipped via UPS without issue. Plants arrived healthy; however, shrubs weren't dense and the sizing was inconsistent and shorter than indicated online. For the price, I could have gotten taller, fuller shrubs at a local nursery. Since planting there has been a flush of new growth, a very good sign.

            Absolutely beautiful!
            I ordered the 7 gallon size and it is absolutely beautiful! Perfect shape and almost 4 ft tall. Shiny green leaves and loaded with berries. Never ordered trees online before but I’m just thrilled with this holly. Highly recommend.
