Holly Tree Sapling Gift

Ilex aquifolium donum

£24.90

Treat loved ones to our Holly Tree Sapling Gift for evergreen splendour. This Celtic symbol of peace, rebirth, and goodwill is truly meaningful and a favourite amongst our customers. This gift can be given for christenings, as the finishing touch for Christmas, or even to someone called Holly.

Our Holly Sapling has a slender trunk and is treasured for its spiky, evergreen leaves. After 4 years or so, female Holly Trees begin to grow berries - don’t eat them, leave them to the birds in early winter. Scented, white flowers also appear, nicely complementing the dark green leaves. This native tree needs hardly any attention but keeps on looking stunning.
