February 2016

Today I toured through my trees looking for growth progress. I was surprised by what I saw. The weather the past few weeks have seen temps in the 70’s and night time temps in the 50’s so trees are showing unexpected signs of movement. I also a seeing the first ever blossoms on my Chinese quince. After so many years of only green leaves this is a great sign of a happy tree. Maples are in leaf already (so I can not re-pot them), pines are showing movement and even the western fig is moving buds. All too early but the climate had changed so much.  Great news on my Brazilian Raintree as well, the new grow light has made it flourish.
