    Having your roots done..

    You go to a hair dresser to have others fix that dead beaver on your cranium. You use a lawnmower to mow a lawn. Leaving things to the professional(s) equipment is always best. Pause.

    Cedar training boxes?

    So I found a great mulberry stump that I want to collect come the winter. I also would like to get my Japanese maple out of its nursery pot when the time comes. I see a lot of people beginning training from collected trees and nursery pots into cedar boxes. I understand that these boxes are...

    I liked that pot too
