  • Caring for your Fresh Cut Tree
    One of my favorite holiday traditions is the selection of our fresh cut Christmas tree. We often traipse through snow filled fields in bitterly cold weather to find that perfect tree. The end result is worth the frosted nose and rosy cheeks.
  • Successfully Growing Traditional Plants of the Season
    Several traditional holiday plants make their appearance in your local retail markets this time of year. If you’re looking for a gift plant, or a decorating accent there are many from which to choose. Poinsettia, are common and form the core of traditional holiday decorating. Others, such as the Christmas cactus, amaryllis and paperwhites, are much less common but offer great holiday decorating and gifting ideas.
  • Winter Bird Feeding Basics
    Winter is a time for repose and reflection, and many gardeners take to bird feeding to fill their need for color, texture and interaction with their landscape. If you are an old hand at feeding our winter visitors, or a newbie, these tips from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will guide you in feeder/feed placement and selection.
