Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Treadwell On Dec 19, 2007, Treadwell from Westport, CT wrote:

I purchased a 10-inch seedling 4 yrs. ago from a local nursery and planted in a spot with some wind protection and some mid-day shade - tree is now 3 ft. tall and 2 ft. wide. Another 10-inch seedling I purchased 3 yrs. ago, moved after a year to a spot with less wind protection and full sun is 18 in. tall. Seems to like some wind protection and growth is rather slow but very symmetrical. Has a very interesting pre-historic look with needles arranged in umbrella shaped whorls on the branches. Great texture and keeps a good dark green color all winter. Nice as a specimen.
