I got a request for Peonies so I just went outside and tried to dig them out. The spade only went in about 4 in. Now my neighbors KNOW I'm crazy [nutz] LOL! I guess I'll have to wait another week or two. [angel]

OH MY GOSH, it's only Feb!!!!!!
There's still time for all of your gardening
books, the couch, hot cocoa or a hot cup of coffee or tea, a nice warm blanket.
Your warm jammies or sweats, and you still
have about 5 or 6 weeks of curled up time,
and reading up on all the good gardening info!!!

Scarlet Begonia,
Did some reading up on the Bristlecone Pine and the Huon Pine.
Bristlecone Pines
quote:
Huon pine is one of the slowest-growing and longest living plants in the world. It can grow to an age of 3000 years or more. Only the bristle-cone pine of North America lives longer.

Read the second one, referr's to the Huon Pine
Being second in age only to the Bristlecone Pine.
quote:
International headlines were made with the discovery of a stand of Huon pines on the west coast that is more than 10,000-years-old. All the trees are male and are genetically identical. No individual tree in the stand is 10,000-years-old, rather the stand itself has been in existence for that long.
I went and checked it out..
My son reads the Guiness Book of World Records everynight, and we have got that one down pat!!!
So, when you said the other pine, I thought, just maybe Guiness had a boo~boo????
But according to those articles, they were right!

There's some good reading in both articles about each kind of tree!!!
