Hollies for Gardeners

Richly enshrouded in legend and superstition, valued for a wide variety of uses and prized by gardeners, hollies have always been part of our lives and gardens. Now they are enjoying a peak of popularity as gardeners wake up to their huge diversity of form, foliage and fruit, marvel at their adaptability, and appreciate the wide variety of situations in which they can be used.

There is a holly for every temperate region of the world, and Christopher Bailes celebrates American, European, Chinese and Japanese hollies in equal measure, providing detailed planting advice and illustrating his account with vivid photographs. This account will inspire gardeners everywhere to discover how hollies, old and new, can enhance our gardens and landscapes.
