My customer has no luck keeping his potteded evergreens alive each year. I have told him about monrovia. I would like a list of plants and evergreens for the New York City and Long Island area. Remember they are for pots on his deck. I would also request imformation on customer care for these items.

will not have time to harden before winter. Next, application of an antidessicant spray per label instructions can also be helpful in some cases.

Since the conditions are so variable -- for instance a mild winter can result in better success than a particularly cold one, or a winter where there are many abrupt swings from hot to cold can be very tough on plants -- in my experience it is better to consider the potted evergreens as an annual planting and be pleasantly surprised when they do in fact survive. Sometimes it is a matter of skill, but at least as often it is a matter of skill plus luck with the weather.

I hope this helps you in addressing the difficulties of keeping these plants alive and healthy. will not have time to harden before winter. Next, application of an antidessicant spray per label instructions can also be helpful in some cases.
