    How on earth do you find the time to look after so many new plants at one time?

    Well, I just do it. Doesn't seem that big a deal to me. I re-pot everything when it comes in and keep it cool and shady for 3 or 4 days. Then I put it in a holding area that gets morning sun/afternoon shade or plant it in the ground in one of my gardens. I plant everything in raised mounds (clay soil).

    What are you doing that I'm not doing!? Maybe I'm doing this all wrong or something, although I haven't lost anything yet - all my trees seem healthy as a horse, as far as I can tell (my Junihitoe put on 2 feet recently!)

    Thanks!

    WOW K4 is badly infected.

    I haven't got anything on order but i could be persuaded. I have a spot at the shore garden that gets blazing sun and good wind. I moved a dwarf ginkgo because it was getting too vertical and competing with a young Pistacia chinensis. I'd like to plant a red dissectum in front of the pistachio but it seems like berberis would be more prudent. The soil is sandy, fast draining and it is an exposed site. Also I am not there all the time to pamper it and there is no automatic irrigation. Anyone suggest a super sturdy mounding red JM in place of berberis?

    K4, that list looks like it has some of Diana's plants.

    Oh, you noticed!? LOL!!

    But of COURSE!!! The Vitifolium in the picture came from Diana, and about 9 others. Most of my trees have come from Diana (Topiary Gardens) or Sam (Eastfork) or World Plants, with Mendicino Maples, Eastwood, Forrest Farm, and Greers making up the bulk of the rest. I've ordered from 13 different mail-order nurseries this year.

    Got this from Greers. Their description is:

    They did not have a picture. The only picture I found was from Dave's Nursery, who evidently carries it from time to time, but it is not on his current price list.( http://www.davesnursery.com/)

    The Dave's Garden web site lists a review from a member who saw the plant at a nursery and also obtained a description from Eastwoods Nursery. It is also not listed on their current price list:

    There is a specimen (35" tall and 44" wide) 'Tattoo' near the old Sunshine Grocery in Nashville . She paid $250 for it less than a week ago . K4 , do you have a 'Ryusen' ?

    Hewitt's used to be o.k. until I got more sense . GTF in Hermitage was awesome until Robert left . Blooms had some cool stuff until they closed . Treescapes in Franklin near Arno Rd. has a few goodies from time to time . There is a new place down here in the boro . They had 4 'Ryusen' and now they just have one , but it is about 7' . Lots of 'Mikawa yatsubusa' , 'Geisha'( Gone Wild' ) , 'Corallinum' , 'Fairy Hair' , etc. . Are you in the Maple Society ? If so I am the only one from Nashville , you can email me directly for more details . gotta run again

    Like K4 I have really gone absolutely crazy this fall with more new plants than I would like to admit! Unlike K4, I am terrified that I have bitten off more than I can chew. I really made a pact that I will devote myself in 2009 to taking care of the new plants that I have (all will be less than 2 years with me), but I had a well defined project (http://www.botanicalgarden.ubc.ca/forums/showthread.php?t=40985&highlight=dream+project) that I wanted to lay the foundation fore. I would say that I have run out of real estate but my wife know exactly what I am thinking when she sees me eye the ugly yews like a thanksgiving turkey:). Most of the plants were from Sam at Eastfork and tricia at essence of the tree. Here are a few initial early gems:

    1) acer campestre carnivale - this is my first foray outside of the palmatums and I found a small tree from whitman farms. These leaves are sooo cool to see in person and the tree takes on many flavors depending on how far you look from it.

    2) sensu - pleasantly surprised - also must be seen up close to best appreciate. very graceful

    3) ukigomo - just a huge tree from sam for the price

    4) bonfire - very teeny leaves. Will be very interested to see how this develops

    5) jiro shidare - from essence. I wanted a ryu sei but sold out. she convinced my that this will be a more than suitable alternative and it looks unique to say the least.

    6) shishigashira - I will say no more!

    7) villa taranto/koto no ito pairing

    8) fairy hair - I better not kill this little gal!

    Paxi,

    Your dream project will turn out well - I just know it! I love Sam, and I'm about to die waiting for my order from Essence to come in. How did you get yours so quickly?? I have to wait 2 more weeks before they'll ship.

    If you want to really feel overwhelmed, you can come help me plant out the 83 trees I've decided to put in the ground this fall! YIKES!!

    Katsura,

    Nice list! You have some unusual varieties I would love to try out. Are you game for scion swapping?? :-)

    Smalljaw,

    Actually, your change did not help. If you follow Eric's instructions I think that will do the trick.

    Gotta get back to my grits...

    K4,

    I got my essence trees on WED of this week. What gems. I got a size 3 murasaki kyo and a beni hime. The beni is everything is my favorite. I also recieved size2 irish lace and fairy lights. Also nice plants. The trees were packed beautifully and in great shape. Good Luck.

    I like to see and hear what other people are getting for their collections. This has been a great thread for me to read.

    Thanks
    Mike

    I just recieved 5 new trees form Topiary Gardens. Diana always sends me great trees. Lemon lime lace, brocade, bronzewing, kamagata and baby ghost. I'd take pics but my camera needs new batteries and i spent all my money on trees.
