Planted this in December 2010 from Willis Orchard Company. It was only $5.95.
Obviously it survived being posted, planted and the frost and is happily sprouting green bits.
Seems to have broken the critical height for competing against the weeds and is looking pretty healthy. this is pretty much the only tree that survived from the initial bunch of nut trees that I brought.
This is puttin gup quite a fight and is looking like it will 'emerge' from the undergrowth. Its amazing that I couldnt find this, I was being really careful trimming back the vegetation, and I thought it might have died.
Apparently this is a rapid grower, growing 3 feet a year, and pretty hardy, so this should be fun.
These little trees are like little gems as eventually the garden will be all about them, whilst currently, its all about the Mexiacan Petunias.
