Re: Any tips on moving a small F nitida?

It did manage to actually put on some growth during the summer. Its a pretty sheltered spot that never dried out and had a lot of nutirtion. Im hoping it did well this winter.

Re: Any tips on moving a small F nitida?

damn thing barely had any roots :( the clump is maybe 4 inches across, and maybe a fist full of roots. However its STILL growing ven after being half killed last winter (protection blew off, so i moved it to a better spot with less competition and more sun)

Its been a while: Update (I guess)

So, to keep it simple: I killed everything. Some personal manure happened, school happened and I didnt get a chance to protect my plants (P "alata", and my F rufa.) They managed to survive an average winter with no protection, and half top kill, but a second winter as such did them both in...

Re: Need info on temperate timber species

Thanks - I wont be going too heavily into bamboo, maybe a paragraph or two. Just something that may be of interest in the coming years. It will focus on sugar maple and yellow birch, and the loss of range of black spruce, white spruce and balsam fir (important species here for forestry in NW ontario)

Need info on temperate timber species

I am doing a paper on the expanding range of forestry tree species for my silviculture class, and would like to add a few "species of interest". The one thing comes to mind is the possibility of bamboo production in BC and southern ontario in the not to distant future. Can anyone suggest s...

Re: Winter 2014/2015

Always nice to see a recovery like that. Depedable, cant find a canadian dealer for bisseti, besides canadas bamboo world. I have heard to many tales of bamboo mites and want to avoid bringing it here. I will say, the information on the site has improved drastically, they now give above AND below gr...

Re: Winter 2014/2015

Well, its official: After 6 years, -37C temps and surviving shipping all the way from BC, my alata is dead. Thanks for getting me into gardening. On the plus side, my nitida i plated last year managed to survive. It is branching about 3 inches above the ground but no shoots yet. I vaguely remember i...

Re: Boo-Shoots for 2015

Nothing for shoots here yet :( Usually alata shoots the last week of may or first 2 weeks of june, depending on year. Im not expecting an upsize, seeing as there are no leaves that survived. Nothing from my nitida either, but this one I am sure is alive. A few dark coloured canes, that are different...

Re: Winter 2014/2015

Thanks John I left mine unprotected, but its alive was just wondering when to expect some growth. Im going to baby it this year. As for the palm, the C9 lights give of tons of heat, but the new LED ones not so much. Its pretty good to see that it survived with minimal protection. I would use heated ...
