LG, I think your holly will recover......hollies are pretty determined to grow.  

You want a lollipop.....not  offering sweets I hasten to add ......so I would take a lopper to it now to get a semblance of shape before new growth starts.  Wont look worse than it is now but in your head you know it will come good.

a generous feed and mulch too.

during the growing season just check on how it is performing.  Some shoots will prob be stronger than others.

Yes, bring them in Valerie.  

If you have some spare seed I agree with Logan and would sow more 

Should see something by now....is your compost a little too wet?  Therefore cold?

I sow onion seed in late December
