Those are my first cuttings from this tree. Last winter, a strong wind got down a big branch and as I passed by, grabed the branch and got some "cuttings".

Got them in a pot and so far so good. New buds are coming nicely but it's too soon to be sure.
Here's the cuttings when I got them in the pot


sorry bad quality

from my past experiment, cedar is hard to grow from cuttings. I hope you have good luck with those. we get them from seed or graft.

And even here in Scotland we seem to have emerged from our most miserable winter for nearly 40years (not to mention the cloud of Icelandic volcanic ash) and are in Spring at long last. It went from daytime temperatures of around 2C to upwards of 16C almost literally overnight. Some pics of my trees as they emerge from their Rip van Winkle state:

Shohin Musk Maple




Shohin azalea




Shohin Juniper




Shohin Potentillas

Here's a few of my springtime JBPs. Their new candles are coming out good and strong in most cases. I have one bigger one which is also my most expensive one that has a lot of weak buds this year. I will probably just leave it alone when decandeling time comes around, but as for these here, they will probably be needing a haircut real bad by then which will be around the 4th of July here in N. Texas Smile

Thomas, those are nice.
you trees are smaller. i think your trees can be decandled on the second week or third week of July.

Hi, Boon, hoping not to rain on your parade [where have I heard that before? Wink ], but on that first maple: you need to bring the sides in.
