This is a cool idea, never thought of using living trees as trellises really. Where it happens naturally I just let it go if it's not hurting the tree. But I never thought of it in this aspect. Got my mind going though! Thanks!

Hey all, just wanted to point anyone who may be interested to another thread regarding the convergence here: https://permies.com/t/12354/eastern-usa/th-annual-Northeastern-Permaculture-Convergence#135013

After many hours of planning we have finally got registration up and running! If you're not in the area but know others who may be interested, it would be great if you could let them know! Thanks so much!

1 is a euonymus

2 & 5 are low growing junipers

3 is a hemlock

4, 8 & 9 ( and possibly 17) are rhododendrons

7 is a boxwood

11 is a geum

12 is probably a shasta daisy

13 18 & 19 are hydrangeas

16 is probably a sedum of sorts

I hope this helps a bit. Good luck.



Yes this helps immensely, thanks so much!

Numbers 2 and 5 should be a Thuja; I think you have a few identical one in there as well.



Haha sorry, maybe come spring it will be a bit easier. Figured I would try and get a jump on it as my girlfriend and I are working on our site analysis and assessment. Which do you think are identical? I just ran around frantically with the camera since it was so nice out.

During my PDC we visited Tripple Brook Farm in Western MA. They have countless varieties, I believe you can order from their website. After a quick look they have varieties hardy to -20! Tripple Brook Bamboo Page
