Our temps are getting bitterly cold this week with a fair bit of snow too. A good time to stay home.

I love this plant. Beautiful bark, flowers, and fruit. (The latter I enjoy snacking on!)

Oh no! A casualty. Two broken branches from the weight of ice and snow. 1.16.2020 I think it's too close to the dryer vent, which I thought would be good for it. #manzanita #strawberrytree

This is one of two breaks. I've discovered that the plants closest to the house on all sides,(some I've placed there for warmth) have experienced more ice than snow. Away from the warmth is powder snow. Lesson learned. @richard.spicer.7906

Its questionable here Ulrika. It mostly grows closer to the Pacific Ocean (100 miles west)where it's a little warmer but I wanted to try one here. We'll see. This will be its second winter here. @ulrikagustafsson

Sounds like you're in for a very mild winter. We haven't had snow for the past month because we had some nice warm temps in October. However, temps are getting cooler now and we expect snow will start to fall within the next couple of weeks. Winters don't really bother us as we prepare for the cold and snow and know it'll only last a few months.😊

Are you having it as a multi stem or single!? Id probably take of the lower ones leaving the 4 more upright

columbiariver

Exactly the shape I'm going for. Where should I make the cut Carol? Thank you ever so much @carolgs

comment
carolgs

Take it back to half an inch from main stem, you can always remove more, just on the one left and is it 3 lower ones, you could gently push them down to see how it would look before cutting

Bless you Carol! I definitely don't want a bush. I'll get a good look first before cutting. Have a nice weekend @carolgs. Hug the kiddos!
