Spring Snows

When heavy, wet snow comes in Spring (or in Fall) check your herbs - especially the shrubs and trees.  Extra weight from the snow can damage plants either breaking branches, permanently damaging the form, or pulling the plants out of the ground.  Plants with new leaves in the spring or those that haven't lost leaves in the fall are the most susceptible.  Gently knock snow from branches. A broom works well for this purpose.
