    You might want to pull up the little guys, stick down into old/free plastic pots with simple lawn/garden dirt, water once in a while and take 'em to your outdoor market...I made over $250 last year on small holly plants! My daughter's house...Holly House...has a 40 ft. wall of mature holly trees for a natural border and cuts the most beautiful berries for the holidays!

      No berries on the mother tree? Then you'll most likely want to sell them as "security hedges". They don't get berries for a couple of years...but I get if there isn't a market and they are a nuisance.

      LOL! Me either. I counted 13 of them yesterday, that was just the side of our property, tomorrow I'll count the rest. Some are 5 to 6 ft tall, some are inches. No berries, just prickly leaves.
