Re: perennials and holiday decorating.....

I would be nervous too.  But the rational part of me says they'll only be up
6 weeks.  The important part is below ground and I doubt they'll suffer from
the decorations.  What I would be concerned about though is what he might be
stepping on.  New stuff could be damaged.
