Hi Walter. I live maybe 300 km from you in the east od Cz an temperatures here fall every night almost to -25 degrees. I hope that my trees will survive:-) If they survive this, they will survive everything:-)

Are hornbeams frost tender in Central Europe?

Walter Pall said...

Yes and no. What can I do I have several hundred an absolutely no shelter for them. In the past years they always made it.

Oh it looks just as cold as in El Salvador, Walter... ;)

Have a nice cup of tea and rejoice about your life and the dreams of your trees.

Walter, you must be getting the weather we got last year in Michigan -- horrible winters! Now it's February and we still don't even have any snow on the ground here! Very interesting weather we're having.

One question I have for you: Do you ever have heat issues in your greenhouse? Do you just keep it well ventilated in the winter so the heat won't build up?

And, as always, thank you so much for keeping up with your blog!

Alex,

no heat problems. The greenhosue is faily large and automatically ventilated. The trees start to bud about 3 to 4 weeks earlier than outside. This can cause some problems.

Have you ever used electric heat-tape to prevent root freeze? I have a Hemlock I just collected in a large box, setting on top of some heat tape.

I have a goal to start one tree this year. I really enjoy the art and skill of all that it takes to do this.
