Okay, spring has finally arrived… well, almost. Both the daffodils & the primroses are beginning to do what they do best so it’s a good sign.
Although I’m loving these flowers… I’ve decided that what I really need are some spring flowering trees. I’d love a couple of flowering dogwoods in either pink or white or both… Cornus florida, I believe. And I’d love a magnolia or two. I’m in zone 6a so I doubt I can grow the fragrant beauties of the south but I’d like a saucer type flowered one…. again, either pink or white or both. I have no idea what species it would be. And I’d love to start them from seed. I love growing trees from seed. It takes a while for results but it’s always oh-so-satisfying.
So my question is this… Does anyone out there have these trees flowering in their gardens right now and if so, would you be willing to collect seed this summer? Just let me know if you’re willing and I’d love to set up an exchange.
