I'm looking for a couple Kieffer pear trees and a smoke tree. Does anyone have any they want to get rid of? Can buy, pay postage, possibly trade??? Would love to get them in the ground this fall, if at all possible. Thanks!

Hi, Sandy.

I tried to transplant (in Autumn) a sucker from my smokebush, and it failed....however, it may have been planted in an area that was too wet. I can dig one for you if you'd like to try, but it may be too late in the year (??)

How big are they? Maybe I should keep it indoors? Or better waiting til spring?
I don't think our ground will freeze for a few weeks yet, as even tho it's been kind of cold at night, we haven't had cold days yet, with temps still in the 50's. So maybe they will do okay if I get it in the ground a couple of weeks before the ground freezes? What do you think?

It's entirely possible that it would be okay. I've always heard that Fall is the best time to plant shrubs and trees.
I think I can get one that's maybe 12-18".
I'll look again tomorrow and get back to you, okay?

...and if you'd rather wait that's okay too. The plant will still be there and it's in one of our very few spots that's not waterlogged in the Spring, so digging it up then isn't an issue. Smiling

Hey, Sandy.

I do apologize, but after digging around my plant I see that there aren't any real suckers handy at present. The branches that I thought were, are attached directly to the trunk.

Would you care to try some cuttings?

Sure! I'd love to try some cuttings! I'm trying to start some cherry tree cuttings and some pear tree cuttings right now, so I'm thinking it will be fun to add some smoke tree cuttings! It will be fun to see if they work, out of all of them, and which, (if any, lol) I can get to take off! Hilarious!
