LetsPlantify.com knows all the design tricks to get the most out of your plant purchases. Have you considered buying small plants in Fall to use for creating an elegant, gorgeous "DoorScape"?
It's easy, just think of plants that shine in Winter. Evergreens, and bright berried Holly probably tops that list. Now, just "deck" your entryway with living holly. (Ok, it's not as catchy as hallways and boughs, but let's go with it!)
Our topiary experts have selected healthy Castle Wall Blue Holly trees and carefully pruned them into specialty topiary. You'll love these perfect, tall and narrow pyramids. Just think of all the ways you could decorate them this season.
They are the perfect size to use one between each garage door stall. Flank your doorway with one on either side. Use in the sunroom as a cute living Christmas Tree.
They prefer full sun to partial sun, so make sure they get their daily dose of Vitamin D. Place them in a sheltered spot out of the worst winter winds.
Beyond that? Spray with Wilt-Pruf when you first get them, check them twice a week to make sure they have enough water and have fun decorating them! These tough decorations should look great for you with just a little care.
After the Holidays, plant them or donate them to churches, hospitals or schools for their campuses. Try your hand at topiary pruning, it's a perfect way to really showcase these beautiful plants.
To ensure the best berry production, order at least one Castle Wall (male) and a Castle Spire Tree Form (female). Use them together as this year's Outdoor Holiday decorations, then plant them near each other for a gorgeous addition to your landscape.
