One Question before I join Backyard Growers Group.
I need to Know if and the best way to over winter my 1st season potted cuttings . no greenhouse! live in North/West Ohio
The best way is to cover them with white plastic. https://mikesbackyardnursery.com/2013/11/over-wintering-protecting-plants-for-the-winter/ and http://backyardgrowers.com/join

Mike, Please answer your mail. Some of us would like to know where the forum “Backyard Growers Group” is.
Mike, If you have my Backyard Growing System, http://freeplants.com/wanted.htm, you should have all the details about where to buy and sell plants online. I only share that info with those who have my system. Thanks for asking. -Mike McGroarty
Hey Mike, I can’t find a link to Mississippi growers.
Are there any Canadian members of the board?
Jim, we do have Canadian members and we are always looking for more people to step up and sell plants to our Canadian members. There is a need for that.

Also, I love all the coralbells you have growing in your yard. Will they live in zone 4? Can I root cutting from coalbells? I don’t see very many around here.
i live in vancouver b.c. do you have any wholesalers in canada because i cannot get them across the border.
hey Mike, love you video, I had a beautiful Japanese Elm. Was the green and pinks was so pretty and it got winter kill in 2010 and I lost it ! So bummed !! I now live in the mountains near Glacier Park… Do you think they might grow there? If they will I would love to have two or three from you, plus I know of a few others who might be interested. They live in Kalispell ,Montana and Hungry Horse, Montana…Will be waiting to hear from you.. Oh your puppy dog was cute too!!
It’s been so hot down here in the south (48 days over 90) I’m wondering if the maples will survive. Should I wait until Sept when it will be cooler?

My son’s Japanese maple is dying after having been nibbled on by deer. He has put a fence around it to prevent further damage. Any further suggestion would be appreciated. Would fertilizing it help?
Zone 4 planted a grove of Colorado Blue and Green Ash with honeysuckle on the north (outside) of this grove in 1976. The grove is dying and I have just begun to clean this up. Planted arbovitae in two areas. Have had the Colorado blues cut up from the bottom of some of the trees. Will plant hosta under them next spring.
Would like to know if Japanese Maples will survive our winters. I live in North Central Iowa. I belong to a local garden club. Perhaps we could combine and work together as a group.
Any comment would be great.
I live in Chula vista San Diego I am not sure if these trees are going to survived around here in the summer.??
I SEE THINGS HAVE NOT CHANGED SINCE MY DAYS OF WORKING MY WAY THROUGH COLLEGE IN INDIANA. THE BEST TOOLS WERE SHOWN BY YOU AND I USED THEM FOR MUCH OF 4 YEARS.
GLAD TO HEAR YOU DON’T USE THEM NOW AT THIS TIME IN YOUR LIFE. BUT IT IS THE BEST WAY TO KEEP IN SHAPE AS A YOUNG BUCK TRYING TO MAKE A COUPLE EXTRA DOLLARS.

Romania will be just fine for the trees.Keep them out of severe winds though.

lavendar twist weeping redbud says
Mike, just wondering how old the Lavendar twist weeping red bud you are standing by is?
How long ago did you plant it? It looks like it has to be at least 5 or 6 years old or more?
I am not good at guessing, am just trying to figure out how long it will take to get to that size.
I love the weeping Japanese Maple you have by your garage as well…Thing is, I am in my 70’s and am not wanting to start trees that will take 10 years to get to the size you have in your yard.
Thanks so much…. I love your web sight… I visit it often and bought your books for family members. Have a good week my friend . Jo Brown
The lavender twist was planted about 4 years ago but was already a decent size at that time.
