Bent 'Ogon' Gold Rush Redwoods
I purchased a couple of Ogon redwoods from the Habitat for Humanity Reuse store, they are both really healthy looking and have long leaders. The problem is one of my leaders is bent almost to the ground. It has only been in the ground for three days, but it looks kind of sad. It is already showing healthy buds of new growth. Will it lift it's leader on its own or do I need to stake it? If so, how do I do that without harming the tree? I can post a picture tomorrow if I need to. (too dark tonight!)
I've never had a redwood. I'm a gardening novice, really, but at $8 for a seven foot leader, I couldn't resist the beautiful foliage.
