A member of another forum Sherry (AKA Hollyberry Lady) gave me some holly seeds last year. After many months in the refrigerator I took them out and planted them in a container. They kind of looked like sunflower seeds to me, but I could be mis-remembering what sunflower seeds look like. I planted 5 or so. I hear that it takes 18 months to 3 years for them to germinate. I'm just going to leave the container alone and see what happens. I sure hope it doesn't take 18 months but it would be so cool to have a nice holly bush in a few years knowing it all started from a seed. I don't know how many hollys are even grown from seed these days since it seems to take a long time and most people could just get a bush from their nearby nursery for some instant gratification.
Has anyone else grown holly from seed?
