To do’s for Holiday Greenery

I know it’s early, but I’ve been getting emails about outdoor decorations with live greenery. It’s early because the real stuff will turn brown and fall off stem quickly.  So, my advice, buy greenery about two weeks from Christmas Day.  Even better is to find live plants in your backyard.  Remember to run your fingers down the stems to make sure the needles don’t fall off. You need a very healthy plant in the beginning to make it last longer. Before you start decorating, cut the stems at an angle or use a hammer to smash end, so water can be absorbed easily.  Place your greenery in a full  bath tub overnight.  The next morning hang as you wish, but remember to mist daily with water.  Also, very important, use cool outdoor LED lights!  Please send in your pics of your decorations.
