"Hey Hiroshi! Yay, my Chinaberrys have sprouted. I'm so pleased it's working out. I was always going to plant them, was just a little time poor is all. Considering the previous summer disappeared and this summer came on so quickly, I think I've done pretty well. In fact, my timing was so good that they sprouted within a fortnight, while I was on holidays. Suppose subtropical has this effect.
Have uploaded some preliminary images to blog http://valleygirlv.wordpress.com/. As of yet there's no sign of the Parasols. Recalled that cut suggestion and scrolled Tree Project for Kathy Thomas' advice. Will let you know how that goes, as well as further documentation. Otherwise, they're growing really well. A Happy new year!"
