Our Asian Pear tree survived huge drama this year. We had to move it from the center of the backyard to one of the corners due to the restructuring project. My gardener didn't think it would survive, and suggested I give it up and buy a new tree! Now you know me...I am a propagator - certainly not a freak about it- but it's along the same line as saving, and "not destroying." So for him to say that to me, I mentally gave him one bad mark! Fortunately, my gardener has been around for over 15 years, so he can afford one bad mark now and then. At the moving ceremony of my Asian Pear tree, which I hung close by to supervised, I was very cautious about making sure him and his helper dig deep enough to save the necessary roots.

They dug deep and about a foot diameter from the center around the tree. We found out there weren't too many deep roots to worry about. Lucky us! The first two weeks, we kept the tree partially covered and used card boards to shade it. It wasn't until a few weeks later that we started seeing new leaves on the tips of the branches. Naturally everyone was happy about its survival and the care we took to make sure it was not too dramatized during the move.


  1. It survived because you care so much.
    These are its blossoms, I suppose.
    Very pretty and beautifully captured.
    I never had the chance to taste it unfortunately.
    To your comment:
    -not the leaves but the petals are shaped like hearts.
    -lilies don't come from amaryllis but these Peruvian lilies do. They are not lilies, they are alstroemerias.

  2. I am so glad you didn't take his advise and decided to try and save the tree. The blooms are gorgeous, it looks like your efforts really paid off.
