growing Albyzias in the Creuse
Hi, I wonder if anyone has successfully grown albyzias outdoors in the Creuse.
A couple of years ago I was given some seed by a friend in the Correze from her large tree which she has had for a number of years and flowers profusely each year.
I kept the seeds in the fridge all winter and planted them in pots in the spring and every one germinated. I have given away some and now have half a dozen left, which in the past I left with neighbours in France when I returned to UK for the winter. My neighbours now go away themselves for the winter so this last winter I dug some into the ground in a shady spot and covered them with hay and bracken, the rest I brought back to the Uk.
They are now getting a bit big to be carrying back and forth each winter so I am just wondering if it is too cold in the Creuse for them to survive. I don't recall seeing any
around so I would be grateful for any information and advice. Thanks
