    Carpinus betulus, Hornbeam nebari

    Developped from 1 year old plant. Planted in the ground and groundlayer one year later. This is the second repot after that. It's basically a stick in a pot with a rootbase.

    Beech (Sylvatica) & Hornbeam (Betulus) Thread Grafting

    Background A month or so ago I began exploring the potential for thread grafting these two 'similar' spp. Scroll down to see the graft and spare the interpretation/justification of this futility! :p:D:p I soon found out that these visually similar spp. are in fact completely different. Genus...

    Advice with Carolina Hornbeam during winter - is it dying or dead?

    Hi everyone, I have a Carolina Hornbeam (I think it might be a variation of the American Hornbeam) and during the hot DC Summer I underwatered accidentally for a couple of days and all the leaves dried up and fell. I cut them all off (around August) and then the tree began to slowly recover...
