Gardening Tip of the Day
Pine, cedar, spruce, yew, juniper, cypress and boxwood are just some of the evergreens
popular for making holiday decorations. The benefits of pruning evergreens now goes beyond
making beautiful wreaths and garlands. Late fall pruning will minimize the risk of damage from
the fury of winter's snow and ice storms.
As you cut greens for holiday arrangements, keep the health of the plant in mind.
After the greens have served their decorative purpose, use them in the garden to protect perennials or to provide shelter for songbirds.
