I picked pods like this from a tree in Spain and brought it back and managed to germinate it I now have 4 small trees that stand about 3 - 3.5 Feet. I am keeping them in my conservatory at the moment and will put them out again next spring. Can you tell me if they are evergreen? I'm not even sure that they are silk trees, but they do look very similar to what is in the picture and if they are will I be able to plant them outside in England UK.
