Hello, The snow is not quite melted from our garden post-the recent Puget Sound "Snowpocalypse." Many of our bushes--cottoneasters; rhodys; ribes, nandinas, oak leaf hydragena, etc., etc.--have been beaten down, with many branches/bushes splayed like distorted wreaths, from the weight of such large amounts of snow. Elsewhere, small Japanese maples; hardy fuchsias; a large rosemary bush of many years' standing; extensive webs of climbers, like Zepherine Drouhins, and other "hardy" perennials have also taken hits and are bent, adrift and, in some cases, broken. The impulse is to prune away the damage, but, having never experienced a "Snowpocalypse" before, I'm not quite sure what the best course of action is to take. Also, typically, March is the time I'd be planting some cool weather crops, but the ground is soooo saturated (as well as cold), I'm figuring the entire season will probably be postponed at least until April. I would love to hear any thoughts/advice from fellow gardeners as to how to best proceed. Thank you.
