Conifers

We often speak of these as the 'anchors' in the landscape. They give the garden solidity and color throughout the year. They can act as the background on which the flowering plants are displayed or they can stand out as specimens in their own right.Malonyana Cedar

In order to keep your plants looking their best we recommend combing out the dead needles and pruning any broken branches or winter killed areas each spring. Winter burning of needles usually occurs when evergreens do not receive enough water, particularly just before freezeup. A major cause of this problem is planting under eaves of a house or in very dry soil without using mulches. Water new plants throughout the first year. Any pruning should be done by cutting back new growth in early summer. Most varieties will show off their best form with very little pruning.

All conifers are potted and must be picked up at the nursery unless suitable shipping arrangements have been made.
