Bartlett came by today and inspected. They treated the Austrian pines for white pine weevil and sprayed fungicide on other trees. The white birches need some serious pruning for development and form, so I've asked Bartlett for a quote.
After March's 5 inches of rain, it's been 14 dry days and everything is drying out. We need rain.
- Watered the katsura tree and the dappled willows.
Dug up the gooseneck loosestrife and planted them in containers with some soapwort.
Whiteflower Farm order came today: 2 male Actinidia kiwi vines, and 3 bunchberry Cornus canadensis.
The little bitty tuliptree I unpotted and planted out in the meadow yesterday is looking very limp and stressed. I hope it takes. We did have a light frost last night, and it only has a little herbaceous growth, it's not really a sapling yet.
I did more cutting and shaping of the new gardens, still more to do. Working at the top of the driveway, I smelled a beautiful fragrance... it's the daffodils! Perfume on the breeze.
