Pinus aristata

I know I said once a month but….
I’m so excited at the early success of my ‘grow your own Christmas tree project’! My Pinus aristata seeds have germinated.

Relatives of these trees are the oldest living things on the planet – according to Chiltern Seeds, where I bought the seed from. Some specimens are over 5000 years old! Although mine are unlikely to live that long in this warm wet climate, it’s interesting (or scary) to imagine a world 5000 years hence.

    Ohhh lovely photo Carrie, put me down for a spare baby if you have any 🙂 It’s wonderful when the first seedlings of promise emerge isn’t it? I got just as excited when my first indigo, tea tree and ashwaghanda seedlings emerged.
