How To Plant Sky Pencil Japanese Holly Accent

Sky Pencil Japanese Holly plants will tolerant many types of soil, but well-draining is essential. These plants thrive in both sun and some shade, give plants shelter from the winter winds as branches could burn when exposed to icy winter winds.

How To Water

Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water very slowly and very thoroughly. The water needs to reach to the bottom of the root ball and that takes time. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each year. Continue this for three years to get your plant well established.

How To Prune

Prune your Sky Pencil in late winter. Touch up pruning can also be done in early summer.
