Tips for Maintaining Specimen Shrubs
<p>To keep your evergreen specimen shrubs looking their best, be sure to give them regular water and fertilize them during the growing season. Prune them as needed to shape and control their size, but be careful not to over-prune, as this can damage the shrub. Mulching around the base of the shrub can help retain moisture and suppress weed growth. It's also important to pay attention to the sunlight and soil conditions and choose the right shrub for the location to ensure they will thrive in your garden. </p> <p>At Provender, we are committed to helping you find the perfect evergreen specimen shrubs for your garden.
