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!
