|Redbud March 2016|
I needed to survey how my plants and shrubs survived the winter.
Last year's winter (2015) was brutal on my boxwood, roses, and holly.
Beautiful blooms on my redbud tree this year.
I want to plant more on our hill. At our previous house on the farm we had a line of natural woodsy redbud trees that lined a hollow.
I almost waited too long to take pics of this weeping tree.
I thought my knockout rose bush above was dead after last year, but I pruned and pruned and waited to see if it would come back. It was so-so last year, so I will hope for a better show this year.
If you know of any good tricks to make it healthier please let me know. Bugs wanted to eat it up last summer.
These three boxwood also had a hard time during the winter of 2015. I thought the middle one was dead from the deep freezes we had.
I pruned and babied it along. It is living...but lopsided, and smaller than the other two. I had to chop out about half of the dead bush. I hope I can shape up all of the boxwood this spring and summer to be more uniform in size.
