    I have a customer that has two of these hollies, one of each side of her porch but this one does not seem to grow like the other... The other is perfect with berries dispersed throughout the plant.

    We can't really grow hollies this far North, but whenever we have a bush that looks different from another and we want them to be the same, we simply prune them alike during the vegetative stage...
    If you pruned them now,,, would that remove a lot of this years flowers/berries or would the blossoms be forming on the new wood, of this season's growth???

    The answer to that question will tell you how to proceed and what the consequences are likely to be,,, if any...
