Plant Arrivals and Opening
1.The Ramble is open every day 9am to 5pm.Trees and shrubs have arrived....more to come. Evergreens are expected next week!. - April 25 2022
2. INFORMATION NOTICE Winter Damage on Conifers If you are seeing red or brown needles on your conifer, that is winter damage that is showing up because it went into the winter dry. Conifers need to be very well hydrated right up to freeze up. As long as the damage is just to the needles and not the twigs, you will see that they will just fall off as it starts to actively grow, and it will repair itself. Be sure that there is a good basin around it, and recreate it if it has sluffed away, and give it a deep watering once a week starting late April as it begins to break bud. Conifers are resilient and I am sure you will see it grow out of this damage this spring. It seems to have been a very tough winter for evergreens. Be patient with it. We always advise people that you need to wait until Fathers Day to allow plants to grow out of winter damage. At that point you can usually use a broom to gently knock off red needles that have not fallen off on their own. - Spring 2022
