Collecting Crape Mrytle
« on: June 29, 2009, 06:41 PM »
With the help of a good friend, I collected this tree in March of this year.  I have narrated a few pics to help demonstrate the process of collecting.  Of course, there are a thousand factors that influence collecting so this is just one example of many.

As promised in the video I am attaching a pic of the tree as it was budding out 6 weeks later.

As always I am interested in your feedback:)

very cool photo/video montage. I'm curious how tall you plan your finished tree to be as i feel the height you've chosen will dictate a tree at least 4' tall by the time it tapers into an apex.

Hi John,

How is your crape doing these days? Still growing strong?
