just for others to know, you sent me some last year. I have 4 trees going strong, gave away 3 or 4 saplings, and gave seeds to a few club members. The seeds were great, and plentiful in the pack you sent.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Do you think these would grow in Idaho?  I'm always looking for more trees.  Especially if they would feed the girls.

I also received a packet of seeds. Thanks. I took the seeds out, removed the chaf and found there were 90 seeds. I made up 30-3 gallon pots and planted 3 seeds in each one and put them around my wife's garden. That way they would get regular watering. I have not had even one tree grow. I left the pots there in the hope  that they might start growing. It would be great to have a summer source of nectar at the farm. Right now we only have nectar in the spring.
Thanks for sending them.

They need to be scarified. Place them in the refrig in a wet paper towel in a ziplock bag for 30 days, then plant them 1/4 inch deep. Give them plenty of water and they will sprout and grow.

PS. Never put all your eggs in one basket. I tried different ways and that is the one that worked.

Oh yeah, something else I can try to grow! Email sent.  Looks like a pretty big tree. I have been populating a 250’ strip along the highway since ’96.  Mostly evergreens (before bees). I put in doug fir in the first row, western red cedar in row 2 and highbred willow in row 3.  Figured the willow would grow the fastest, followed by the doug’s followed by the cedar.  The cedar would not loose the lower limbs like the doug and the willow would hit the chainsaw when they got too large.  10 year plan worked out pretty well (most of the willows gone) and  the Dougs could go away for something with flowers.

I received my seeds too!  I am sharing them with my neighbors so we will have plenty of bee trees around the area.  Hopefully it will keep my "girls" happy!!

Thanks for sending them!

Got mine in today's mail. It was nice to get an early x-mas gift. Hardy in zones 4-8, so will give a try next season. Wish I had some seeds to send you back.

 :shock: Wow! never even knew there was a seed swap sticky in the gardening section. Guess I should snoop around more often.

Thanks JC. Received them yesterday. I have read up on several different ways to get them started and will try most of them. I will transplant all that grow across our farm.

Again thanks!!!

I also didn't know there was a seed swap! It would be great to get a few of these growing on my property. I normally have seeds to trade but I just moved and this will be a rebuilding year for me. Sent and e-mail. Hope there are some left.

Got my seeds.  I am going to put some outside for the winter in some shallow containers and put some in the refrigerator. Any other suggestions? 
I was out looking for a place to put them and walked through my western red cedar hedge and right into a hawthorn.  Nice flowers, pretty tree, pretty berries on it now. But it drew first blood and I am going to kill it.

Hey JC
I got the seeds today. wow that was alot of seeds. I am going to plant some in the garden area to see if they will come up, some in the refige for about a month, some in the freezer for about two weeks, and see which way works best. then let the guys know around here which way works best for the seeds I'm going to split with them.

Thanks again

John
