Before it gets cold we would like to remind you to put burlap on your sensitive tree. Example Emerald Cedars , Japanese Maples, and Japanese Cherry's. Anything plant Zone 5 and above. Also protect the trunk of your tree with rodent guards.(rabbits love burning bush, willow , Japanese maple and fruit trees. Use dormant oil on your fruit trees in February or March to prevent over wintering insects.
Today a customer from Serbia came in to buy some plants. He decided on 'hens and chicks' (sempervivum) because he said the latin name meant always living and that in Serbia they would put the juice of the plant in people's ear for good health. I'll try it on my husband tonight and let you know...
On a personal note...

It's good to note that in the fall a lot of cedars will have brown spots on them and that this is natural. There is no problem with the cedar it is just an occurrence during the fall and will be gone in no time and back to green. The only reason for concern is when the top of the tree is brown.
