For Alex - Ogie

Hello Alex,

hope you are well.

I read your comment in- Newbie Bonsai Owner.

You can grow some cold weather trees in the tropics. If they can handle 30 deg.c temperatures for spring / summer/ autumn, and only need a cold/light induced rest -------> use a refrigerator.

Take the young whips from China, or the lower US or the Mediterranean near sea zones or Africa, the UK and Europe are too cold all year long, no hot summers like the US for example.
Maybe from the Isle of Wight.

I had a sloe from seed from the Isle of Wight, for 3 years which didn't even need a refrigerator, but the neighbour's cats got it. It was a sad morning.

I intend to build a coldroom to try a few of the cooler species, nothing too tall, say 15 inches [38 cm ] and under. Memories of life away.
Stay Well.
