We tend to think of fall as the time for dropping leaves but some trees wait until spring.
Even though it’s fun to buy plants in the spring, when so many trees and shrubs flirt with you by being in bloom, Fall is a much better time to put things in the ground.
Which is it? You see a plant tag that says ‘semi-evergreen’ and you may wonder, what exactly does that mean? Is it evergreen or deciduous?
They may look like Christmas trees, but ‘deciduous conifers’ don’t stay ever green through the winter.
They might look pretty pathetic at the moment, but so many of those deciduous trees and shrubs that you find on sale right now, are a smart gardener’s best friend.
To carry on the wind, some tree pollen is particularly dry and light, so it blows easily through open windows, onto your car, your clothes and up your nose — and may make you sneeze.
