    Transplanting Holly shrub

    I have a type of holly shrub that is dark green in color, has no berries (that I know of), has five needle point leaves, and is a fast grower. I would like to know if there is someway to transplant clipings from the existing plants. I want to put a hedge row along the edge of the yard next to the road. I live in the country and there is a drainage ditch next to the road. with a slanted bank (about 6 feet between the ditch and intended row of shrubs.

    I'm not an expert on propagation and know little about rooting Holly- I think it's fussy that way and it may be worth getting a couple small ones at the store. However, first look around your property for seedlings and transplant those while you are waiting - they are pretty tough. Perhaps someone else will throw in their two cents :)

    You might want to do a search at www.google.com with:
    Ilex + propagation
    or
