I live in Brittany, France (countryside about 40kms from the northern coastline). I think my zone is 8a, our winters are always dipping in and out of between 0c and -8c, rarely -10c (32f - 16f). Sometimes snow stays all week or a minus figure will harden the ground anything up to 2wks, and often very cold winds. Not to forget rain, rain and more rain (thankfully the ground drains quite well). In short this corner of the planet has OK springs and OK summers and then near 6 months of cold, wet, windy misery wondering if My beautiful Eucalptus trees will survive.
Why do I have a passion to grow stuff that wasn't 'born' here!!
My collection is quite pleasing but I'd really like to know what trees I can add? Special interest? odour (good or bad)?, colour?, always fast growing?,
How to protect them?
Economical heating for greenhouse or polytunnel?
and how can I put photos onto your Hardy Euc Page?
