Host Richard Hentschel talks about several ways to re purpose the Holiday tree. The tree works very well as a feeding station or weather protection for the birds. Other uses are using the branches for weather protection for tender perennials and those plants that have a tendency to heave out of the soil. The bare trunk can be use for 2016 gardening. Use it for support for peas or perhaps morning glories.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
