Yes Mark,,it stands a pretty good chance of growing.  No guarantees though.  Hollies don't generally being transplanted but I've never had a problem.  I guess it's the plain green variety?    It will probably be a good pollinator for other hollies too.

I guess a lot of people are a bit low currently Edd thus the representative comments on the forum

well done on securing that contract ....sounds excellent.

when I first participated on this forum it was mainly gardening questions and then a popular general thread.  So the forum has changed in the sense that it embraces more than horticultural issues.......includes cakes,,babies and even jokes. ,so,,returning to my opening comment, I think many posts and threads are also "high" and positive ones here.

Mum more alert today.  Smiling a lot.  Drinking lots of tea today but resisting eating.  She resents me insisting she eats...carer spoon feeding me the occasional glare followed by a smile and comment.  

I know it's wrong but one of the residents goes around pinching spectacles, dentures, hearing aids and anything he fancies and I have so much resentment towards him.  My mum had a card today but couldn't read it cos I'm sure he's got her glasses again. He tried to enter my mum's room last evening but I said "no.  Not your room" but what can we do?

brother causing more mischief again this morning  at the care home but I'm just going to ignore it.

very best wishes to everyone going through difficult times
