Snow can damage your plants!
We’ve had quite the wallop of snow this year in the Puget Sound region, more so than we’ve seen in previous years. Plants that have not yet acclimated, that are brittle, leggy, or already weakened, may be susceptible to breaking under the weight of snow. Yew hedges, because of their naturally loose habits, are especially vulnerable at this time. A good way to help our plant friends out is to shake the snow off! So if you find yourself out and about, or your kids are playing in the snow, feel free to give those hedges and plants that are feeling the weight of the snow a little shake. Flat roofs also benefit from some snow removal, but make sure to be safe in these icy conditions!
