i have a small holly bush in my back garden that is south east facing. but i was hoping to move the bush to the front garden (NW facing) that is full shade up until about 3pm in the afternoon. 

 

are holly bushes ok in shade?

Dark green varieties will enjoy shade.  However, variegated varieties will need some sun or they will revert to green.

Yes. Mine are fine in shade, the variegated hedgehog holly  as well.
