Sassafras berries now after years of none
I don't understand my sassafras tress at all. Someone wanted berries several years ago, and since we often find lots on our lane many years, I promised him some. For the next 4 years, we couldn't find a single tree with berries, and we're talking 80+ acres here.
We have lots this year, funny little dark purple ovals with 1 orange spot...anybody want some for something interesting I don't have?
I have extra Early Lilac Syringa oblata seedlings, too and there will be ripe Spicebush berries soon. Probably Bittersweet berries, Celastrus scandens, too, as usual, this fall.
For those of you wanting woodland around your home, just help the wild encroach. In natural wooded zones, like our eastern Ohio, wild arrangements are always more graceful and interesting than what we create, seems to me.
