The title of this post come from my days of retail gardening. A customer was talking to me either about a weeping cherry (the smaller tree on the left) or a magnolia) the larger on the right.
Anyway, she had one of these “messy” trees planted too near a deck. She was speaking about it very disparagingly and said that it ought to be “illegal” to sell trees that made such a mess.
I’m not sure about you, but I’m certainly willing to put up with some “mess” for a display like this every spring.
And anyway, don’t we have enough silly laws?
