I have a Dawn Redwood I planted 3 years ago. It is about 9 ft tall but the problem is it is growing like a weeping one and it wants to flop over. Could it be the central leader died out and it is growing out with a side branch. It seems healthy in any other way. I have it tied back all the time to keep it straight.

plants near walnut tree

Posted on April 6, 2013 at 10:59am 1 Comment

Mark,I got a row of blue spruce and eastern white pine 15' tall growing along south side of a drive to screen out traffic. The row runs east and west and house is to south of it. The row is 100' long but as it gets to about 50' west of a large walnut tree pines won't grow there. What I would like to know is there something that would fill in that 50' gap. Would spring grove arborvitae or something like this grow in that walnut zone. I would like a evergreen 20' tall at maturity.

Lawn renovation

Mark, My brother-inlaw did a complete lawn renovation about 5 weeks ago by reputable lawncare company. The house was built this time last year and the builders went ahead and seeded it without doing it right. It was full of rocks and debris and there was very little grass growing.

I looked at today and it looks like… Continue

Baby Blue Eyes spruce

Posted on May 26, 2010 at 11:05pm 1 Comment

Mark, this sounds like the plant I am looking for. It will be surrounded by conc. in a 11' ft. circle. I am thinking this looks similar too a Blue Spruce shape but in a drawf shape and slow growth. Would you think this plant would do ok here, it is in a full sun location and can I get one of these plants? Another plant sounds good is Keteleeri it will be more narrow. I am not sure what this plant looks like though.

Mark, I found a couple spruces that sounds interesting for a small area surrounded by concrete but don't know too much about them. One is pungens 'Baby Blue Eyes' 15'h 10'w and another is orientalis 'Gowdy' 15'h 12'w. These has the right deminsions for the site and are evergreen. Do you know anything about them?
