Japanese Maples and Dwarf Conifers
As I’ve grown older, gone to college, lived in different places, seen a lot of the country, I’ve realized how fortunate I was to have a wonderful family with such earnest interests. My Pop Pop’s passion for growing Japanese maples has rubbed off on me, and after he passed away, I decided that I’d like to learn to cultivate Japanese maples and conifers as well. For the past few years I have been fortunate to have learned from some very generous nurserymen and growers about techniques for cultivating different types of plants. I’m experimenting with these methods to see what works for our region, and for small-scale growers like me.
