That's it woody.  Worth a visit I think 

I grew The Bishops Children too from seed.  Only  shades of red and orange though.  Keep about half a dozen of the best but they have produced vigorous excellent plants.   The equal of the Bishop for me

If I recall correctly you need a couple of male hollies to help set berries on Golden King.  And I remember comsidering J C van Tol for this very purpose years back. 

It seems whomever classified hollies like this had a sense of humour but I think he/she was simply comfused or not so bright

Yes in process of doing that now........from now through the month I remove all leaves.  I do it for 2 reasons......to remove all traces of poss hell black spot and to enable uncluttered view of flower buds as they emerge.  I also mulch now too
