Snow and Ice in the Garden
Keep in mind that in most cases you don't have to do anything to protect well placed, hardy plants from snow and ice. If you are worried about weight, you can remove snow by brushing upward on branches with hand or broom.
Never try to break or remove ice accumulated on branches - you will do more harm than good.
If you have found an orchid in the store recently, you may wonder how to take care of it.
