April 12, 2014. Linda (our Nursery & Landscape Manager) and Jesse, (our Landscape Designer), went on a field trip yesterday to the Western PA Garden and Landscape Symposium. Here they are posing with renowned plant breeder and author, Michael Dirr. Way to represent the home front, Linda and Jesse!
April 11, 2014. Just reminding everyone that spring is kind of late coming this year. So be patient, especially with your evergreens that are showing winter burn. It may be 2-3 weeks before you see some new growth. Then you can do some shaping and pruning. In the meantime, give your plants a feeding with a slow release fertilizer like Hollytone, Treetone, or Plantone. If you’re still worried, bring in a piece of your plant or some pictures and we can help you. Remember, last year the temperatures were in the 80’s by now. So we are about 2 weeks behind, so hang in there.
A note from Nursery and Landscape Manager, Linda Boswell
