There may not be much growing in your garden right now, but that’s why it’s a good time to take a look at your landscape.
Now is when you can see the skeleton of your landscape, said Peggy Koppmann, Master Gardener, in the latest issue of WNY Gardening Matters, published by the Master Gardeners of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Erie County.
In the article “This Month in the Garden,” Koppmann suggests thinking about where you might put new shrubs. Winter berry, holly or red twig dogwood look beautiful against the snow. Evergreens such as pine, spruce, fir, juniper, yew and arborvitae can provide a backdrop of deep green, blue or gold. And if those are too large for your landscape, there are dwarf varieties of shrubs available.
