where is everyone/anyone??? (31 Replies)

This is a really slow forum: does it pick-up in the springtime or something?

It hasn’t up to this point. (This website isn’t even two years old). We are also experiencing a limited number of members who are registered with the site (582), many of whom have limited to no interest in social media. Personally, I’m more engaged with a couple of the conifer discussion boards that exist in Facebook.

hi Mr Olszyk, I always enjoy your informative posts and have been reviewing lots of old threads here……good stuff, didn’t realize this is still in it’s infancy: dwarf stage 🙂 maybe in 8-10 years we have seen some growth haha (conifer joke)
I always day dream about doing “gardening comedy” at a meeting or tour or something haha, would be a very specialty niche for comedy 🙂 that only nuts like us would understand haha

stay well Sir

Hey Jeremy we’re working on setting up a group of folks who will begin some engagement here. Facebook has big limitations (mainly because we don’t own the info and it is lost to posterity almost immediately after being posted). Topics here remain archived on this site and are searchable for folks who have the same issues or questions in future. Stay tuned. In the interim, feel free to post as you wish. I will certainly see it and your posts will be viewable by others as they join.

What did you prune? We’re about to do some pines and chamaecyparis. My garden is a demonstration site for the Marin Aesthetic Pruning Guild and a group of apprentice pruners are coming with experienced pruners this Wednesday.

I’m here! I don’t use facebook either. There are some other forums in/on/of the web that have good conifer discussions, but I certainly wouldn’t mind an active forum here.

Jeremy we are going to do some Pinus densiflora – shaping – and some Chamaecyparis pisifera where we clean out the inside and also eliminate a lot of the duplicate branching. The plants look much better and because you can see through them (slightly) they have much more dimension and movement.

that sounds nice……I usually clean out dead stuff too, I use a bamboo stick to gently beat all the dead out, very easy on Chamaecyparis and Thuja’s, hope to see some pictures! thanx for the reply 🙂
