    Do you grow plants?

    Plants: I've grown lots of them. Lots of them a lot. Is anyone into botany?

    I absolutely dig trees. Since I live in a small apartment, I only have two at the moment, an Acer platanoides which I rescued from a lawnmower two years ago, and a Greyvillea robusta. Unfortunately I have the opposite of a green thumb.

    I defoliated the maple a few weeks ago and the foliage grew back great. I then used fertiliser , which the tree immediately reacted to with wilted leaves. Now I'm just hoping it won't die.

    The Greyvillea, on the other hand, seems to be struggling with the recent extreme swings in weather/humidity/temperature we've had.

    I've been known to grow some plants from time to time. I planted a Yoshino Sakura cherry tree in April 2005; I went out and found the best dirt for it, planted the sapling lovingly, kept all of the stupid Japanese beetles off of it, and kept it warm with heaters during the winter. It has to be at least fifteen feet tall now.

    Sometimes, I grow and consume other types of plants as well.

    Well, it was so cold outside I didn't think my tiny little sapling would live. Something had to be done!
