    You need to have both sexes. Only the females will have berries, but they need a male for pollination. They will grow in a large pot.

     Silver Queen is a male and will not have berries.

     Golden King is female and will have berries.

  • my holly is full of berries too! just waiting for the redwings and fieldfares to come, the berries as do the woodys. I agree that we should grow more berry bushes rather than putting out fat balls but having said that I like to watch the antics of the birds on these .
