Getting trees ready.

I started getting trees ready for the SBA show next Sunday, a week or so back and it has been one problem after another.

The number one problem is with a Squamata juniper, which as most people will know are prone to die back of needles on the inner foliage.

As shown here, as a result there is a lot of work to be done to remove them.

They have to be taken off with tweezers, which is a time consuming job, but well worth the effort to make the tree look much better on the display bench.

My second problem is moss to cover the soil, I went out to my usual gathering places and nothing was there. It really must have been very dry around here as all the moss has died off so I think I will just have to top dress with a fine layer of fresh compost.
