Berry Poppins

Finally we have the Berry Poppins winterberry for sale at our nursery. We have tried for several years to get this shrub but it was never available so we are pretty thrilled that we now have it in stock. If you like winterberries, or a shrub with red berries in winter, this might just be the one for you! It has a height and spread of 3-4′ and you can use Jim Dandy (the male) as the pollinator.

WINTER GARDENING

Winter is starting early this year. Even without the blooms and greenery, a covering of snow brings a beauty to gardens and landscapes.

A fluffy snowfall covers the evergreens. Bare branches pop against the snowy background. There are so many interesting forms of branches that just magnetize in winter.

‘Perennial Grasses’ become highlighted features in the landscapes…not to mention how much the birds will appreciate their seeds.

Birdhouses and feeders, ar bors, benches, retaining walls and garden art objects look both wonderful and interesting with a covering of snow.

Hoar frost on objects sparkle in the crisp winter temperatures.

So, while our gardens are still providig us with a display of beauty, take the time to enjoy the view while having the steaming hot cup of coffee or grab your camera and for a winter wallk.

Mother Nature does not fail.
