The general opinion among people I have spoken to has been that holly doesn't grow back. However, my bushes have sprouted some leaves. I want to know if I can expect them to completely recover. Anyone have any experience with this typw of situation with holly?

I would wait until the sun goes down and the tree cools off and mix up 2 tablespoons DAWN with 2 or 3 drops of hot sauce and spray.............everytime it rains spray again.............they don't like might have to put a 5 or 6 ft fence around this until it grows back, this is a slow grower..........if you live near a local zoo...........see if you can buy some predator dung........some of them sell it............the deer hate it...............

I am not sure about the regrowth, but the easiest and most effective solution we have found to keep deer away from our bushes is Deer Repellent Packs by Shake-Away. These packs can be simply hung by the bushes you want to protect for up to 90 days protection. They are all-natural to boot. Check them out at
Three winters in a row mine have been eaten. It always comes back, and it actually made them fuller!
