I would like to find the specific required info regarding propagation from cones (or cuttings!) of specific varieties of pine, spruce, larch, and cedar, as well as the miniaturized Chamaecyparis Obtusa. Could anyone link me up or (!) even recommend a book? Any tips or thoughts any of you might have, beyond this, would be most appreciated. I have a sizable garden around my home, and although a good bit of that will be planted with fruit trees, raspberries, blueberries, and black currants, I would like more coniferous ornamentals for a woodland swath. I'd also like to make some very large hypertufa planters, also for (small) trees. There's a small heated greenhouse as well. Our neighborhood is somewhat lacking in trees, and people don't seem to have much inclination to gardening. But they would happily accept gift exemplars of said. I would like to see a lot more trees in our neighborhood, and I also just want to try and grow some of these sorts of trees. In addition the the Hinoki cypress i mentioned, I would love to grow Dwarf Alberta and Blue spruce, Common Juniper, Tamarack, Common Yew, a weeping Cedrus Atlantica or two, and even some pines. I also have a terrible weakness for the Mountain Larch, which I've heard (sad to say) does not do well in our Delta climate.
