sky pencils

tme112June 14, 2007

Does anyone have any expierence with sky pencils? I live in southern ca and want to make sure it's not to hot out here before I purchase them. Also, I am a complete novice at gardening. How would I plant them and how much water is moderate? I have a sprinkler system, so how long would I put them on the plants a day. I know this is a loaded question, but any help would be appriciated.

from what I can see on google it's a very attractive shrub/tree, but what we need to know is what your planting zone is, what kind of enviornment did you plan on putting it in, etc. etc. I think it might be a good idea, also to visit your local nursery or wherever you plan on making this purchase and getting all your questions answered from a source that is in the same locale as you. It's tough learning to garden at first, but ask questions and hopefully you'll get directed to a reliable source of information.

Also, tme, there might be more folks over in the Discussions area who are from SoCal with experience growing this tree.

We're in the off-topic area, which doesn't mean you can't post plant stuff, but it just means less people will see your question(s). :)
