Propagating Holly Shrubs from Cuttings?

Category Cuttings
Plant cuttings taken in late spring or early summer. Remove the leaves and a section of bark along the base of the cutting before dusting with rooting powder and placing in nursery pots filled with saturated sand or peat moss. Keep moist and in dappled sunlight until rooted. This is a page about propagating holly shrubs from cuttings.

A neighbour has given me 2 evergreen holly cuttings from her shrub which is growing beautifully. We believe that you must have a male and female to ensure the plant gets holly berries. Is this true and if so, how can I tell if I have both?

Also any tips on rooting these cuttings would be appreciated.

Thanks

It is true and sadly, there is no way to tell which you have. All you can do is wait and see if you get berries. If both cuttings are from the same shrub, they'll both be male or female depending on the parent.
