This past weekend was hard labor and driving around to pick up trees and bushes and mulch. We can only fit two trees/shrubs in the Subaru at a time so we made a few trips out. I finally finished planting the privacy shrubs along the long side of the fence facing the street. The before pictures really make me feel like I’m (slowly) making progress.
Last year I planted two Christmas Jewel® holly shrubs and two Dragon Lady Holly shrubs. I planted them in September which was a little late in the year for them to get settled in for the winter and they ended up with some frost burn. They are a little scraggly but starting to fill in a bit more.
I needed a male holly and on my quest to find one I came back with a very scraggly Blue Prince holly that I got for free. I went to my local garden center and the owner told me that they had a rough winter and he couldn’t sell one to me so he gave it to me!
