Planting with Christmas in Mind

If you’re thinking about a new landscape for your yard, or just changing up an area on your property, consider incorporating evergreens.  We see them all around in outdoor decorations during the Christmas season, so wouldn’t it be nice to have your own to cut for outdoor containers and window boxes - or even to fill vases in your home?    Tree varieties like Pine, Spruce, Cryptomeria, Leyland cypress, Magnolia, and Holly; and shrubs like Mountain and Cherry laurel, and Andromeda, are excellent choices to enjoy and utilize all throughout the winter months.   The soil in your pots from summer plantings will act as an Oasis for your evergreen boughs.  With this collection of material on your property – and maybe adding in some Kale and Winterberry holly, you can create your own beautiful winter containers.
