    Anyone with a spare Larch Seedling

    I made a Larch forrest planting this spring w. 5 that had been in the ground for 3-4yrs. I had to place it on the ground while screwing down my new shelving to the posts. Anyway, a dog stepped on the smallest one on the perimeter and killed it. Does anyone have a spare 2-3 yr old Larch...

    Needle Hardening Off Clarification

    Are Pine needles hardened off when they've opened up and have had a slight darkening? Or is it not complete until the full waxy covering has been established? Thanks

    Ponderosa Pine #1

    Here's the tree in 2012 when I got it: Languished a bit last yr, but is more than making up this yr with tons of new buds. I think these pines love akadama as this is the only thing I've changed in my routine. Here's the...

    Pyracantha and Trunk Dev.

    I took a Pyracantha air layer a yr or two ago. Never had any prior experience with these, but have since learned what a slow grower it is. Wondering if I should just put it in the ground for a couple yrs. to grow out a new apex? It's in a small, 1/2g, green nursery pot now and is very healthy.

    Dealing With Escape Roots

    I've got to deal with some escape roots. For two separate reasons, one pot I ran out of shelf room, so I simply put it on the ground in my planting area. In the second, was a small 6 inch plastic pot that kept getting blown over in the wind. So I filled up the 12 inch pot with pumice, and...

    Ponderosa Pine No 3

    This is a newly arrived PP that again, thought it deserved it's own thread. It's backbudding and ready to be worked. But I want to live with it before I make a decision, besides, not the time to be styling this anyway.

    Juniperus × pfitzeriana 'Old Gold'

    Thought this tree deserves it's own thread. Collected around 5/15, but very close to the lake, = very cold and delayed spring growth. (there's still trees along the lake that still has no leaves on it!) Under shade, wind protection and 2min mister q. 4 hrs. I believe I'm already seeing...
