STOCK WISH LIST FOR 2019

 

This year was an unusual year for seed collection.  The weather really affected both pollination and seed set this year.  Some species that are vulnerable to frost in spring did not set fruit.  Other species that avoided frost damage were, sometimes, poorly pollinated because pollinators need non rainy weather to fulfill their jobs.  Later blooming species were well pollinated but aborted their fruits with the prolonged drought that southern Ontario experienced in the summer.  Weather also played havoc on the oaks and hickories throughout Ontario.   Some areas of Ontario got rain relief from the extended drought and this translated to a modest acorn crop for some species of oaks and hickories.  Other parts of Ontario, where they were not so lucky on receiving the odd rain storm saw no acorn production, at all.

We have composed a listing of what will be germinating and you can build your wish list with us. Then it is up to the plants and time.

 

…A tree that looks at God all day,

And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear

A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;

Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me, 

But only God can make a tree. 

 

Joyce Kilmer
