This time of year is when the Nellie Stevens Holly casts off any damaged leaves from last year, those are the yellow leaves you see falling to the ground.
Japanese beetles directly damage landscape plants as adults while the larvae (grubs) damage turf grass.
The evergreen privacy fence of Holly trees drops some of their leaves in the spring and it's flower production, if pollinated by the bees, produces the berries.
Nice crowd at The Maryland Home and Garden show at the Timonium fairgrounds. It was great to meet 2 of the Pryor's Nursery VIP show ticket contest winners! And of course, 100s of people interested in privacy screening for their home inquired about the living fence. We had a sample of our evergreen trees at the show for everyone to see. The 7ft Green Giants ,10 ft tall Green Giant, a 7 ft Nellie Stevens Holly and a Leyland Cypress were on display in our show booth.
Fall is great time to plant and transplant plants in your garden and yard.
