Many gardens include conifers such as Douglas, noble, grand, Nordmann or Turkish firs. Chal’s talk will focus on common problems that gardeners and Christmas tree growers share. Some of the problems may have a solution, others may simply be warnings to avoid future problems. He will also discuss some of the culturing tips that may be useful in gardens.*MG education credit*
