Love this one M, to have one is wonderful but 3.......Thats just fantastic. Very envious.
Dear members, can someone send Penta seeds to me?
I would really appreciate it, and will pay the posting cost of course.
Sorry, I got mine as seedlings. The one I have left, today :
If mine ever get old enough, and thrive enough, to produce seeds I will gladly share them. Watch this space (in about 10 years time!)
Just ahead of the first properly frosty weather I put them into the (unheated) greenhouse yesterday. Currently I have 3 that are several years old and 2 young ones heading into their first winter. All leaves dropped some time ago so no pictures to post.
One of the older ones has some semi-healed bark dieback around the base of the trunk; luckily it does not seem to be girdled, and there is evidence of healthy wound wood. I have seen similar damage on young potted maples when grubs have eaten the roots and started on the lower cambium when they ran out of food - I am not sure if this is the case here or if it has been caused by some sort of oomycete or fungus. They had a dose of vine weevil nematodes at the end of September so hopefully that is the end of it!
