RE: Alberta Spruce & Ilex Meserveae "San Gabriel"


I bought extra figuring some wouldn't make it, but we'll see if their
instructions work, Donna.  It's a bit of a risk, but at that price, I didn't
think I could go too wrong.  Usually Lowes gives a one year replacement
warranty.  We'll see.

Blessings,
Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5)

I bought some similar last year in the hopes of using them in the garden
railroad by keeping them pruned. Well, about March they died. (Probably
forgot to water them or something)
