Spectacular day today in Denver. Clear blue skies, bright sunshine, light breeze, 60°. Perfect day for the kids to go skiing and me to water all my new plantings from last spring. Young trees and shrubs, bone-dry now. A major investment to protect. Evergreen plants are not dormant in the winter; they continue to transpire and need water! Time to go move the hoses again. Are you watering your evergreens (broadleafs and conifers)? Locally, the horticulturists aren’t discriminating; they’re advising us to water all our trees this winter.
