My dad has real luck with saplings popping up in his Tennessee yard. One such sapling was the Cypress tree I showed you a few weeks ago. It is now too tall to measure. Another tree that he gave us from his yard is a Cedar. The red clay colored pot is that sapling. The other cedar is one I took out of the woods behind our house here in Georgia. The Holly is another tree I dug from the woods but the holly did not survive being moved. Sorry Holly... sniff sniff...
*note, I am showing you the vent that the Saint replaced since that first picture. What an ugly eyesore the old crawl space vents were. Always a home renovation going on around here!
Here is the little cedar I took from the woods growing strong today. It was difficult to get a good picture so I am going to show you two angles.
I am a "learn as you go" kind of gardener and one thing I have learned from this little cedar is, they sure do grow slow!
Here is the cedar my dad gave us. The mother plant to this cedar was not wild but a nursery purchase. This one seems to grow faster and with a prettier shape as well.
