It's a lovely arrangement. The biggest mistake I made with our garden was popping in perennials without putting evergreens in first. I was so desperate for flowers. I do keep that in mind when things die or just in case I get the itch to move things around and open up a spot for some evergreens. Fingers crossed you won't have any damage.

Very fresh and full of holiday cheer! Wasn't it cool at your place a few weeks back? Wouldn't the plants have gone dormant then?

LOREE — We have had a number of frosts and lots of up and down temps since then. So I am not really worried; but it did surprise me to hear the comments from those in the know. Maybe the continued warm temps are a problem that is keeping things from true dormancy. Who knows?

KRISTIN — The advantage of having snow for a chunk of the year is that it made us put in evergreens early on. Took a while to realize what a good idea that was.


It's a most suitable and gorgeous ceramic plate for the display! I love the variety of shapes and colors of your conifer collection. I'm sure it smelled amazing too.
(I doubt you clipped enough to do any damage at all.)

CHAVLI — I'm sure I didn't hurt anything either but when the pros in our Hardy Plant Society send out warnings I tend to pay attention.
