holiday happiness...day 5 ~ 12 days of christmas
day 4 in the 12 days of christmas hosted by hoe and shovel.
this is also a great time to buy trees and shrubs...
got this teddy bear magnolia to go with another one i
purchased earlier this year and planted for mother's day.
believe it or not, december is the best time of the year to plant trees.
you might be surprized to learn that they make 75% of their root growth
between mid~ november and mid~march. plant now and you give them
time to get some good root growth before they have to face the demands
of a another growing season.
plus this was 50% off....yippee!
this one isn't in the ground yet but soon..
happy days of december.
