Featured Question

My spouse may have just killed Jasmine, is there hope?

I was horrified to find my husband has “pruned” a large Jasmine plant until it is a bunch of sticks with very few leaves. Is there any thing I can do to save it - or is it a goner.

Featured Question

Is a strawberry tree a good choice?

My daughter lives in Salem and we would like to plant a Strawberry Tree (dwarf Arbutus unedo). Can you verify the growing zone there? There are a couple of arbutus outside the Salem library that seem to have weathered well, but is it common for them to freeze in Salem winters?
