HI,
I'm selling on E-bay my Ilex shilling. It's going thru a growth spurt right now so looks shaggy, but letting it go so new owner can work it over :). More pic's and description on E-Bay or Email me any questions.

$1250.



Thanks , Robert

Thanks Bonsai Barry, I'm really attached to the tree but just don't want to have to haul it back and forth every year. If doesn't sell may see about a trade for a hardy tree ( ZONE 5 ).

Ilex Shilling

I have recently purchased one thats is roughly 20 yrs old. It needs a little work but i'm nervous about wiring because the branches seem very brittle. Does anyone have any advice?

Yes, take your time because they are about the most brittle tree you'll encounter. Wrap the branches with wet raffia and you should have a little better luck.
