My baby Japanese Maple
I am going to try to post a picture of my young'un. It was a "volunteer" from my neighbor's yard. I've tried raising others like it before, but had no luck till now! I dug this out of our lawn last year and stuck it in a corner of my front bed for a nursery to see what would happen. Last fall its few (maybe four) leaves were munched off by varmints. They came back once, but were eaten again. I gave up hope. But this spring...voila! Here it came back! Now it's about a foot tall, with many leaves. My questions are, what kind is it? And also, should I just let it grow straight for a few years? Do I need to remove any leaves at this point, or what? I've never raised a tree before!
Now let's see if I can make pictures appear...
No such luck. I'll post this then go try and figure somthing out!
