I have been looking everywhere for Japanese Larch and just ordered some from here. Thank you!I got some a few years ago from this nursery but it looks like they have already sold out until the fall of 2022.

I just put together a 5 tree forest with half of mine and saved the other 5 just in case I need replacements, I also have a 7 tree J. larch forest a d another 10 of those for future decelopment. Those came from Scenic Hills

They have them in various sizes and numbers.
How does your Larch fare in the summers here though? I've had 2 for about 4 years and the summer heat here is brutal on them. My understanding is that they may suffer more because it doesn't cool off over night during our summers.That's what Matt Ouwinga was telling me too, but I have found them to be incredibly easy to care for the last few years that I've had it, I never water more than once a day and mine is in a 2 inch depth pot.
I have had different experiences with roots. They sell 2 different sizes of plugs. Previously I got the taller plants, on the order of 12” or larger and those can have gnarly roots since they were grown in plug pots which constrain the roots so itcrestes a lot more vertical growth. The small ones I got this year had a lot less of that and it was easier to work with the roots. I was able to easily plant 5 in a very tight clump and they have grown like gang busters. The J. larch seem to be much more vigorous growers and put on more girth and height in a year than the Americans in 3 years. However I have all 10 of my original Americans but only 17 of the 30 Japanese I have purchased in the past 3 years. Part of that was my fault overworking the roots, not moving them to the garage in a freeze, and not getting them out of the afternoon sun one August. So my advise is to go easy on root work, keep them moist, protect them from freezes after they leaf out, give them morning sun and afternoon shade. As I said I created a 5 tree American forest and 7 tree Japanese forest this spring and they are doing great so far but I still have my fingers crossed and am keeping the extra trees on standby as fillers if need be. There are pictures of my forests in the show us your larch thead.How much did you have to mess with the roots?
My Japanese larch has been perfect the last 2.5 years or so that I've had it, its in a shallow pot also and I dont water it more than once a day in the summer. It is in full sun also. I keep having to trim back every couple weeks or so in the summer because it grows so much.How does your Larch fare in the summers here though?
