How many leaves are left on your Paulownia?

Post by Adam D » Fri Oct 30, 2009 7:42 pm

Well, how many then?

I came home from work today and I have 2 tiny ones (well, small for a foxglove tree!) left 8)

One of mine has about 10 leaves until Sunday when the whole tree gets blown away, the other two I have already cut down as the leaves started looking tatty in September :wink:

only got 1 left on a 4foot tree i got this year.
i haven't git the nerve / balls to chop it this year unless someone on here can convince me !!! and whilst i know they are hardy, it isn't yet in the ground and so will remain in its pot until the grand re planting in the spring when it will be part of the "bigger plan"

any special pointers for pot grown plants, will it be OK if the pot gets frozen, god forbid, like last year?

I kept mine in a pot for a few years before it went in the ground and we regularly see chilly temperatures up here and it was fine.

So, I don't see a problem keeping it in a pot until next year.

mine still has all of them until i went and touched a few and they fell off lol,
My paulonia is about the same size as the one above in the pic. Are u going to pollard it to get massive leaves, if so when maybe another year or 2 do u think?

Parkeey I pollarded it this year after it started budding I'll do the same next spring. It had lovely big leaves this year but they have flopped now. It has grown quite alot but I want to keep it quite small. :)
