Hello Everybody ... it's OFFICIAL. Along with this forum post comes a whole lot of sunshine for you to hold onto forever and a day. Catch it now!

Who already has a tree in a container? You? Great. Is there room for another one? Even better. And if you haven't grown a tree in a pot just yet, then now is the right time because anytime is the right time to grow a tree.

If your weather says no for reasons it has - then thinking ahead, dreaming and planning to grow one make excellent soul food and will surely go towards helping with the busyness and fun of the upcoming celebratory season.

Plant a Tree in a Pot

Tell us your story please - which trees do you have growing? Which is your favourite? Which do you intend to try?

Cheers

Hi All,

Talking about Trees, I was in the library this morning and came across this piece of writing that I thought was too beautiful not to share.

In Zambia, between the towns of Ndola and Kitwe, stands the Chichele Mofu Tree in the middle of a dual carriageway. According to local tradition it is an Ngulu, that is to say a house of spirits in which the spirit of the long-dead chief lives.

This tree was declared a national monument in 1976 to commemorate National Forestry Day and at its foot stands a plaque with this anonymous poem.

Ye who would pass by and raise your hand against me,
Harken ere you harm me.
I am the heat of your hearth on cold winter nights,
The friendly shade screening you from the summer sun;
And my fruits are refreshing draughts
Quenching your thirst as you journey on.
I am the beam that holds your house,
the board of your table,
the bed on which you lie
and the timber that builds your boat.
I am the handle of your hoe and the door of your
homestead, the wood of your cradle and the shell
of your coffin.
I am the gift of God and the friend of man.
Ye who passes by, listen to my prayer ...
HARM ME NOT.


Reading something like this puts me in touch with the real stuff of life.

Cheers now

A few years ago I planted a patio apple in a pot and it was on my deck. It had apples the first year but the squirrels got them early on. The tree has not produced again.

Gee Angie, you seem to be unlucky in your garden, I am sorry to hear this. I can't guess why to offer advice ... have you been to the garden centre? Maybe they can solve your problem. Hope the apples come back, they are one of my favourite fruits.

Bestest
