Holly is tough. You could do it now and I am sure it will be ok.  It is what I would do...job done then.  However, early spring is prob better Christmas holly if you are at all concerned

Exactly so Nut.  Should have said "pruned" not "prunes"

Yep, you can cut holly very hard....to the ground if you want to. Christmas Holly I would cut to about 30 to 40 cm above the ground.  Not sure it will grow from the base if cut back to 150 cm....prob just regrow from prunes points.  A generous application of fertiliser will help.

Great Christmas plant ideas that don't quite work out

Getting hyacinths in same pot to flower at same height.........not always successful.  Planting individually to associate later is a solution if you plant enough.
