Remember those evergreens I told you not to cut back? Now is the time to go out and snip some of the new growth off and trim them back to the desired height. Now don't throw away all those pieces of evergreen because I'm going to show you how to make a handmade fresh cut evergreen wreath.
I always like to use three to five kinds of greens in a wreath. I gather them up in a bundle and then using paddle wire and a metal frame, I take bundles and wire them to the frame, working my way around, while wrapping at least three times around on each bundle until I get to the end. The last bundle is tricky. You have to lift up the first bundle, slide the last underneath and wire in. Leave some length on the wire and form a loop for hanging.
Next, I spray the wreath with wilt-proof. This is an anti-desiccant that you can pick up at a nursery. McCormick's Nursery usually carries it.
Put a bow on first and then decorate with pinecones, nuts and seed heads from the garden for a natural look. A glue gun comes in handy for this step.
The combination of fresh cut greens and spraying with wilt-proof will ensure your wreath lasts well through the winter.

----------- TIPS --------------
Limited quantities. If you put multiples of an item you want and we only have one in stock an alert will pop up on the desktop site telling you it is out of stock. That means the quantity you selected is higher than the available inventory. For example, Tufa Troughs are all unique. There is only one of each. Each week we take an inventory and add back products that might show as sold out. We’re doing this so we don’t oversell by mistake. So our product availability will change weekly.
iPad shopping. We learned that the pop-up screen where you enter your credit card info was a problem for some. At times the credit card fields were way at the top of the screen and some could not see where to enter their information when shopping on an iPad. This happened especially when they had big orders. If you have problems please message our Facebook Page. We’re learning right along with you and want to help.
Special Pricing. Every now and then we run thank you specials for our loyal customers. When we do, special pricing will show only for you once you log in to your account. This special is unique to you.
