Every year I add to my conifer collection. I admit, they are my weakness. This past year I increased the size of my garden and added four new conifers. One of them was Abies koreana ‘Silberlocke’.
This past summer was a challenge for many things in my garden because I spent a good part of the summer away from home. Unfortunately we had a flood in our house and had to relocate to a hotel. As many of you will know, having worked with contractors, two weeks away very often turns into a month away. Unfortunately August was also very dry and my ‘Silberlocke’ did not get the water it needed. I know, I know….I preach about caring for new plants and yet I did not follow my own advice. Lesson learned….I will be very careful next time. With any luck I will be able to get my hands on another one and try again.
