I have this weird thing about growing trees from seeds. Typical like to grow fruit trees, but there is something cool about growing the largest trees in the world. Since there is no nursery in Georgia as I know that sells Coastal Redwood I started from seed. Plus I think it makes it slightly more personal to get a tree started from seed. If you do want to skip the germinating process and get a year old tree they sell them online.
Coastal Redwood trees grow naturally in California. They are apart of the Sequoia genus and cypress family. Other names are giant redwood and California redwood .They can live up to 1800 years and reach 380 feet (tallest).
This is my second attempt to grow these trees. Last year I tried to grow Gaint Sequoia and Coastal Redwood. The Coastal Redwood was easier for me, because it is required to put the Gaint Sequia seeds in a fridge for like a month, then after that they are fairly slow growing. I was pretty impressed the growth rate of the Coastal Redwood. Last year they died on me because I place them outside too early, too much water, and too much fertilizer. I did have one lived that got a good size ( almost a foot tall and wide), but the lawn mower cut it down 3 times. The third time the lawn mower hit it died on me.
Driving down the backstreets I found it for sale. Thought it was sorta cool. More images coming soon.
