Brachychiton Kurrajong (small leaf )

Post by Milo »

Hi
Was not sure if this one would shoot as it had no small roots on base and was sitting on top of soil at the back of the nursery.

Will remove from pot (March ) to check for any rot and reseal if necessary

Hi No Idea

That's how I feel some of the time.

I found once the hot weather came it was drying out and the tips burning, so place it in a larger container with extra soil and place in a morning sun only position.
It has started to grow without burning now.
Will wait till branches reach thumb thickness (may be 2 years ) before blending top

I cut about 300 mm from the top that was cut off and prepared in the same way and place in the ground and it has not missed a beat.

Thanks for the interest.
