Cutting Evergreens

Evergreens always need to be freshly cut to last. Use pruners to snip the greenery, and then place it in the foam. (Pruners also make a lovely gift for that special gardener on your list.)

Water daily and spray the greens with water to keep them looking fresh. If you are collecting greens from your own backyard, remember to wash them and shake them well to get rid of any insects that may be hiding in the needles.
