The fact you haven't seen Holy growing here, and I haven't either, is that it may have a different significance here in Bulgaria, there are so many taboos regarding plants, that may be the reason.

it could also be down to the fact that holly may not grow here!

Hi all according to my wife who is bulgarian, there is no taboos as regards to holly as far as she knows!! However holly does grow here i have a very nice holly bush in my garden, but admitedly had to bring it from england, you wont find it in any hedgerows or forests tho because its not native to here, plus its not too keen on the bulgarian summers, especially this year :)

I am sure I have seen holly plants for sale in the larger diy shops like brickoladge, i brought my own wreath out, 100% fake, but looks real same as my tree, money well spent.

quick apology i was a bit out with my info yesterday its not so much the heat but the extreme differences +40/-20 that holly isn't keen on plus they like a decent amount of water when it is hot, a good mulch in spring and autumn and plenty of water in the summer does the trick.

Yes, I bought and planted a holly bush here but it didn't survive.
