The Harvest Begins

We have begun to harvest our first branches of the season.

At this time of year the harvest is labour intensive. Since the shrubs still have all of their leaves we must carefully strip them off by hand before they are ready to bundle and ship.  

 

Bundles of 3'-4' yellow dogwood in September. Yellow dogwood start the season a brilliant hue of green. With colder nights and shorter days this green eventually turns to yellow.

Glorious bundles of 3'-4' flame willow. We LOVE orange!
