I put this in a large Pot when I moved house so that I could decide where to put it in the garden as I had just moved house.  2 years later ,still in the pot it is now getting more green leaves than varigated ones .  I am planning to plant in the garden now but wonder if I should cut out the green branches before I do this.  Can anyone help please.  Many thanks.

the only thing that I found worked was to cover it with black plastic, I tried the boiling water method but found it was only a short lived result, it was back after a few months.I have moved into a new house and it has masses of it, I am going to cover a lot of it in black plastic in the autumn and leave it until the spring and see how much is left.  will let you know next year.

Can anyone identify this bush for me?

I think its a holly,  I have an evergreen holly but it has been losing its leaves for the

last 9months or so, it is nearly bare now.  Why is this?. can anyone help me please.

the only method I have found is to cover it completely with black plastic sheeting or

old pieces of carpet.
