I just picked it up. I figure I need at least pne evergreen. It is in a 2.5 gallon pot. The trunk is an inch across kind of short with a bit of taper.
It looks better in person. I will go a bit slower with this one. I did chop a few small limbs in the parking lot. IMG_20150405_115624.jpg IMG_20150405_123559.jpg

Well I know someone wanted to say put it in the ground. So I went back to get another. Sold out in three stores.

I did find a sales rack at the last store. I found a Fllowering Quince. Eight bucks. Someone split the pot it was in.

I see a need for better tools.

Anyone know of a better photo editor for my phone and tablet?

You can water by placing the pot in a bucket of water till surface is damp. Waters from the bottom. And you should repot soon. Be careful how you deal with the roots when you repot. Ask if unsure.

It made it through a day. If it makes it through a week. I will feel better.

I need to buy wire and tools before I buy another tree.

Pots too. Where do I find cheep pots for beginners?

Well its still alive. Not so worried that I took off to many roots. It did sprout a few new leaves. Now the goal is to survive ssummer.

I had read that it is good to rotate trees to promote better health. Is that for all trees? I know withy dessert rose the leaves would shead if it was moved to often.
