Winter is hard on plants because they lack the truly cold spell that triggers a deep winter sleep. Typically their growth is stunted the season following an unusually warm winter. For conifers Spring fertilizing is very important. In a future post I will provide information on the best types, timing and how often. In the future I would also like to set up a forum to answer questions from you and offer up advice in your landscape designs. I would also like it to become a centralized place of communication and information exchange. Please, comment and let me know if you think this would be helpful. I'll leave you with a picture from Winter 2011.
