There are woods all around me, and there are lots of sycamores. zem

They are a messy tree. I am forever picking up bark, twigs, and seed pods all over the back yard. Not to mention the anthracnose that afflicts sycamores almost every spring.

Bonnie, I'll be on the lookout for some in my flowerbeds this spring. I love them, too. I transplanted one to my yard last year, but I don't have room for any more. I hate to pull them out and throw them away. I'll let you know what comes up.

Do you have any seedlings? I am trying to get some sycamores to grow on
our property. We purchased one...only one area nursery had one for
sale...my DH and I think they are beautiful.

It doesn't get cold enough where I live to need real heat inside the
greenhouse. I put in 3 big plastic drums full of water, figuring it would
be
a kind of thermal buffer for when the temps drop. I guess it works.
Sometimes if it is forecasted to get seriously cold I'll run a little
floor
heater at night. What I should have done is buy a bigger fan. Even in
winter, when the sun is out it gets hot in there, upwards of 90F. By the
end
of March I've moved everything outside. Mid-summer it will get over 120F
(comes in handy if you need to dehydrate veggies or fruit leather).
I have a dilemma now though. When we sited the greenhouse there was this
small struggling sycamore nearby. It was a side of our yard we didn't use
much, didn't irrigate. I didn't figure the sycamore would cause a
problem. I
guess it got enough water from what drips onto the greenhouse floor
because
it got big in a hurry. Now it shades the greenhouse quite a bit when I
bring
in plants end of October, and here the dead leaves hang on the sycamore
for
months unless there's a really big wind. On the plus side, most of what I
bring inside is the stuff from my patio which has been in partial shade
all
summer anyway. But the tree is not going to get smaller...so I need to
decide what to do about it.

I think I am grateful now that I made the decision to go passive solar
only
in my grnhse so I do not have any gas bills. I do have power so in really
extreme weather I can leave lights on for enough additional warmth to keep
from
losing everything. It seldom gets below 28F even with several cloudy 0
degree
days in a row. Of course I'm not really "growing" anything...just holding.
But it
works for holding the more tender things in 1 gal pots and I can be out
there
potting up plugs and bare root in Feb. Don't have running water 'tho which
is
sort of a pain but do-able. By the end of Mar I'm bursting at the seams
but
by then I can start hardening off which isn't too difficult as the pots
have

been subject to a hard life already! Am still anxious to try hypertufa.
It's
a
New Years resolution! I like this time of year..Anticipation is high ( and
the
body doesn't hurt too much yet). kathy
