This week, in the periodic ‘Farm-to-Table’ segment, University of Illinois Extension educator Richard Hentschel and First Light host Brian O’Keefe continued their visit to Platt Hill Nursery. Nursery Manager Chrissie Sieff took them out to an enclosure of sapling trees. At this time of year, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that the area could get a very wet and heavy snow. Richard and Brian talked with Chrissie about what you should, and shouldn’t do for trees and shrubs that are weighed down with ice and snow
