Customer Spotlight - in Errington, British Columbia
Today we're featuring a passionate grower of trees Bunny G. from Errington, British Columbia, Canada. She has been growing Giant Sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) from seed and her saga is chronicled here.
Bunny noticed her first Giant Sequoia coming up around the 20th of April 2023
Following on from the first success five or six more came up in a few days:
The methods of germination that seemed to work best included use of a paper towel which the seeds were sprinkled on. Using wiggly tall transferrable forestry sleeves was another approach reported as worthwhile.
There were however obstacles that had to be overcome:
Bunny considered destroying the large slug invader, but ultimately decided to remove it from the garden area on a long walk. It was weighing close to half a pound.
While some of the seedlings suffered damage from the slug attack most recovered. The slug ate the needles leaving the seedlings that were attacked stunted from the loss.
Bunny had a host of funny names for the seedlings that she germinated.
We thank Bunny for taking the time to reach out to us with her results. We extend the offer to all of our customers: send us some feedback and images of your grows to be featured on the blog! We hope you enjoyed reading!
