That is what I was told as well Hudson. Take about a 12" cut off of a branch and sharpen one end and drive it flush with the ground. It will sprout from there. Trim back heavily when grown so that new sprouts will come out.

I just checked a tree that was missing a few leaves Tuesday, it's freakin bare! I missed a big batch and am sick about it. Had to be 300-400 to eat a tree this size in two days. Dang it man

The worms don't come to the tree, they hatch on the underside of leaves and eat non stop. If there's enough leaves they'll mature in about 8 to 10 days and go onto the ground.

mine died 2 years ago after it got eaten clean 3 times in a row.

I'll be clearing a little land and buying 20 or so this winter to plant.

Hello everyone,

First forgive me if this post is out of place but by searching and reading I believe this is where it needs to be. Thanks

I am looking for a place to purchase a couple of Catawba (catalpa) trees to plant down next to my catfish pond.
Does anyone know of a good place in Mississippi or the south to purchase 2-3? I have wanted some for many years then next thing I know it's hot weather then I forget during the winter.
Thanks so much.
Also you guys have a very nice group here I am glad I found it.

PM me your address and I'll mail you some seeds, they're very easy to grow. You can plant in pots and transplant to wherever you want them.

While we are talking about planting trees, does anyone know of a nursery anywhere in or near the Golden Triangle area that sells planting sized catalpa trees? I'd like to plant some but I'd rather pay a little more and get larger stock - maybe up to 15 gallon size.
