Got some Carpinus betulus for in the garden to screen of ugly wooden fencing. I bought 5 of them, but only needed 4 for in the ground (raised bed). I had build a grow box a while ago and thought this was a nice opportunity to see how well a young Carpinus would grow in a growbox with Terramol compared to the others in the ground. The mix I used for the grow box is pure Terramol with some peatmoss in it for the hormones.

The raised bed has a cover of pinebark and rocks because the cats from our neighbours will dig and crap in our garden if there is any soil exposed. Cats....

So far the boxed Carpinus shows first signs of buds staring to swell. The ones in the ground are still sleeping.
