How to Create an Autumn Conifer Container Video

My fur babies and I had a great time creating this video to share with you.  Take a look at how easy it is to plant up a conifer starter plant.  If you don’t have a conifer starter plant I share where you can find some to grow  for your landscape and container designs.

I love saying the word ‘conifer’ so I end up referring to most all my evergreens as that.  A conifer is “a tree that bears cones and evergreen needle-like”  In order to put this video together I used one of the American arborvitae plants that I started from a starter.  I mention in the video how I purchase these from our local Soil and Water Conservation District.  I share more about my planting of these starter trees on my website at the  Tree Project.
