Snow damage to your plants

Or 'why it's important to shake your trees from time to time'.

Sad pics tell the tale. This little conifer has been covered in snow in December. I hadn't realised just how heavy snow is. Because the fall stayed so long, it laid heavy on our plants. I was more preoccupied with clearing the path rather than clearing the plants, didn't really think about it in the cold. And now I'm paying the price

of my inattention.

I have quite a few plants that are deformed after being weighed down. I'll have to wait a couple of months to remedy the weird shapes and I'll end up pruning them out of the plants.

A lesson learnt!
