Why Are Dwarf Conifer Desirable? - The typical landscape of your average home today is limited in scope, thus making size an important factor when selecting landscape plants. The compact, slow-growing characteristics of dwarf conifers make them an excellent choice when space is at a premium. Many commercial nurseries saw this need for smaller trees and propagated many of today's most popular dwarf conifers from witches' broom material. Their efforts have proven to be beneficial to the bonsai enthusiast, as compact size and slower growth rates, make dwarf conifers excellent candidates for container cultivation of bonsai.

Chlorophyll functions in plants in the process of photosynthesis, ..

Thenongreen leaves still contain chlorophyll so photosynthesize quite well.

that is the main place to trap sunlight for photosynthesis…

Eudicot mesophyll has two distinctregions: palisade mesophyll, containing tightly packed, elongated cells whose placement is antageous for absorbing sunlight, and spongy mesophyll, containing irregular cells bounded by air spaces right next to the stomata.

At that point photosynthesis begins and your little ..

The majority of the large ornamental cherry trees will grow to a height of twenty five to thirty feet and will produce a very vigorous root system and a lot will depend on whether you want to plant any other small plants or shrubs within your garden. I personally would be inclined to choose an alternative tree species such as Ornamental Crab Apple or Japanese Acer Palmatums Cultivars which would be ideal for your small walled garden.

Some cacti and other plantshave green stems that conduct virtually all the photosynthesis.

It's week 30 of 36 in our CSA season and we are fast-approaching the winter months of limited growing capabilities. All that remains in the fields now are cold crops like cabbage, roots veggies, and greens. Some crops, like broccoli and collards, will start to turn purple and taste sweeter as the temperatures drop. Get ready for a heavy cabbage season after all the rain we have been getting. You can expect to receive a different variety of cabbage each week, so if you feel like you are getting over-whelmed/stocked before winter; you are correct! Cabbage can last for several months in your fridge. Just peel back any outer layers that have been exposed to open air to fresh useable cabbage beneath. This week's share includes a freshly cut head of red cabbage. Red cabbage is bold and peppery tasting compared to green cabbage and lacks water weight, which makes the leaves chewier and coarser than Napa cabbage. Red cabbage stores even longer than our other types of cabbage and is the oldest variety, tracing back to Celtic and Nordic cultures who wandered into Europe around 600 B.C. Anthocyanins pigments cause the deep red coloring and provides more health benefits than any other type of cabbage with protective and therapeutic properties used in many human diseases. Cooking red cabbage usually turns into blue cabbage. Check out the Bavarian Cabbage recipe on the back for a delicious use for the "red head."
Collard Greens are back in the share this week. Not a fan of this cooked southern tradition? Check out the Pasta Carbonara recipe on the back for a sure-way to surprise any doubters of the collard green. This recipe was created by my Mom/farmer, Terra in her home kitchen during the fall last season. And just in case you needed any more reasons to cook with this "super food": they are an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), vitamin C, manganese, folate, calcium, and dietary fiber. They are also a very good source of magnesium, iron, vitamin B2 and vitamin B6. They also contain vitamin E, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, potassium, vitamin B1, vitamin B5, niacin, zinc, and phosphorus.

The leaves and the steams collect sunlight for photosynthesis, water from the air and rain and carbon dioxide from animals, vehicles and factories.

Transpiration - Transpiration is the process of water loss from trees and plants through stomata. Transpiration occurs when stomata open in a humid surrounding and close when it is dry. Stomata - are small openings found on the underside of leaves and are connected to vascular plant tissues. Transpiration is a passive process, largely controlled by the humidity of the atmosphere and the moisture content of the soil. Transpiration also transports nutrients from the soil into the roots and carries them to the various cells of the plant.

Ithas been found that 5 to 40% of total tree photosynthesis could be due to barkphotosynthesis in aspen.

The reason for damage due to girdling is that the phloem layer of tissue just below the bark is responsible for carrying food produced in the leaves by photosynthesis to the roots. Without this food, the roots ultimately die and cease sending water and minerals to the leaves. Then the leaves die. As you can see from this process, there is a delay period before the roots and top dies. There are some stored foods in the roots and lower trunk that allow the roots to continue functioning for a little while. This delay gives you time in which you can try "repair grafting". Don't wait any longer because the roots will soon run out of food.
