    Alas ! The mother-tree died. It hadn't been repotted for years, and the roots made a cork trhrough the three holes of the pot. When I finally took it from the pot, water flowed from the bottom. The roots were dead. The tree is dead.

    I gathered samaras, and planted them.

    The "children" are all different, of course, and that's something I like !

    The first one is very similar to the late mother-plant :

    This one is rather weak :

    I hope that out of ten, at least 5 will thrive...

    They germinated in 2020, they're 3-yr-old seedlings.

    Those are all nice! Sorry the mother passed, though. I have a bad record with diseected seedlings, I hope you do better!

    My old friend Bill worked with a band called "5 guys named Jeff." It was a quartet. Not a Jeff among 'em.

    @dicky5ash

    I have some seedlings from seeds you sent me, they're not as fast-growing, but they're healthy. I will take some pics later.
