Tropical Gardening: Buy a tropical pine for Christmas and support local farmers

  • Courtesy of VOLTAIRE MOISE Locally grown Norfolk pine are available at some nurseries. These living Christmas trees can be kept in their containers and be used for several years. When they get too big, they can be planted in the garden. But don’t forget that they get very big.

Christmas is almost here, so folks are sending cards and buying and mailing gifts. But it seems like most folks are a bit slow in getting their Christmas trees up this year.
