Wrapping The Farm In Burlap!

I am a firm believer in covering boxwood shrubs and other plants that may suffer damage from winter's frigid winds and heavy snow with burlap.  This is a practice I've followed for many years and it offers tremendous peace of mind, knowing that branches won't be spayed and misshapen, or even broken from wet snow and ice.  The trick is to get this task done before the elements of winter can do any harm and with our recent crazy weather patterns, this deadline is challenging!  I'm happy to report that the job was successfully completed before our recent heavy snowfall and plunging temperatures.  As usual, I commend my crew!
