Despite our best efforts, sometimes trees and shrubs fail to flower. In this episode, Jim talks about some of the possibilities as to why, and what you can do (and plant) to make the most of your landscape.

And you thought getting a PHD would take years of hanging around the library when all you needed to do was go outside to dig a hole. For that you DO need a PHD - a Post Hole Digger. Making that hole productive for a new planting does require a bit of art and a science, but there are no early morning classes or exams to sleep through. So get your PHD and start planting! Your landscape will be ready to enjoy by spring break.
