Holly tree

brer(Zone 7)May 18, 2014

I have a little holly that never gets berries. Does that mean it's a male? Do I have to buy another female to get the berries? Or, could it be a female and need a male around?
Also, it is being crowded at the ground with ivy. Could that keep it from flowering or growing berries?
I know I should wack out that ivy, but it's going to need a hatchet, I'm afraid. :(
