If the weather is mild or windy be sure to mist your loose greens (wreaths, swag, garland) or water your greens (planters) weekly, however, once there is a consistent freeze outside, you won’t need to worry about misting or watering. Since evergreens absorb water through their needles, misting will add life and sheen.
