Hello to all.
We have a beautiful winter and I should have lots of time to write. But somehow no time for anything this year. I didn’t even finish planting seeds yet.
I went to Poland last year (in September) to visit my family. Of course,I collected seeds every where. I hope that they germinate nicely. Most of them call to be left outside. I brought the seeds of various trees and shrubs, some with edible fruit.
One of them is Cornus mass, tastes like sweet cherry. Unfortunately I cant find the pictures of that tree. On the picture, I am standing at front of European Beech Tree. One of my favourite shade trees with beautiful grey bark. The leaves are a shimmering green when unfolding, turning to a dark green in summer. Russet brown and golden bronze in fall. Dense, upright, oval form. Prefers moist, well-drained soil and full sun. Grows 50′-60′ with a 40′ spread. (Zones 4-7)
