Any disease that attacks popular plants is scary. It’s ugly to see plants dying, expensive to remove and replace them, and it also hurts nurseries and garden centers.
Some evergreens reward you in winter by turning a beautiful bronze to add interest in your garden when there is little else to look at.
Some evergreen shrubs can get burned by winter winds or suffer sun or frost damage. One way to help them through the winter is by spraying the leaves with an anti-desiccant so they don’t dry out.
Nothing adds appeal to your house quite like a windowbox full of something seasonal but if you get too busy to keep up, you’ll end up with empty planters or dead flowerheads greeting guests at your door.
