Re: In the garden and out


Well, now, as it turns out, I took down a different redbud, though it was
also on my list.  The one I described before will wait until the leaves are
gone.  this one was  alongside the south side of the house on the outside of
the timber walk. When I installed the walk I put in 3 redbuds about 15 ft
apart as I thought that side of the house boring.  The one near the back
didn't make it. somrthing ate its roots.  About 3 yrs in the one near the
front was hit by lightning and I lost half of it.   I patched it up and it
continued to live but every year half its branches had no leaves/  It never
looked healthy.  The middle one puts out enough branches for all 3 and I
continually thin it.  So the sickly one is now down.  One tree on that side
is plenty as I do need some sun areas.
