Holly bush with no berries
I'm hoping someone out there can give me a bit of advice about my holly bush
(which is rapidly turning into a tree!). I planted it about eight years ago and every
year upto this year I've had lots of lovely berries - this year I've counted only three!
It's the varigated type with green and gold leaves (no prickles). Am I right in
thinking it's the male which bears berries? Beside it is the female (I think)
which is very prickly but has the same coloured leaves. I'm at a loss to know
why I don't have berries this year - can anyone help me with this please?
I should say that the problem started in the spring, because there were
hardly any flowers on it, hence no berries.
