Paulownia is the only one genus of fast growing trees in the monogeneric family Paulowniaceae. The genus Paulownia includes several species with similar properties; that is why they are described by collective name of paulownia.

Paulownia species:

Paulownia is not just another exotic tree. It is difficult to list without missing some all the areas where different parts of it are used. Wood, leaves, blossoms – each of them have properties we can use.

The whole plant – with its remarkably fast growing it is a little treasure to the environmentalists. They have found,that paulownia, with its rapidly developing root system, is extremely suitable to afforest plots at risk of erosion. It has been routines in some countries for a long time – in US for example, where erosion is a constant problem. Paulownia is also suitable for reforestation of burned forest lands; except the obvious advantages, because of the considerable quantity of foliar, it provides natural fertilization of the areas after the fall of the leaves.

As we have already mentioned, the relations with our clients do not finish with purchasing some paulownia. Velboy Ltd. provides support on every stage of planting this wonderful tree. However, it is possible to some of you to want to deal with it without our interference; but as our purpose is our clients to achieve the best results possible, it is pleasure to as to share some of our knowledge about the necessary conditions for growing paulownia and our experience in planting it, described in several easy steps:

Velboy Ltd. is a company, successor of Velboy 13 – Velichka Angelova ST, founded in 1993. From 2009 we offer saplings and seedlings of the species Paulownia elongata and Paulownia tomentosa and also their frost-resistant hybrid. These are highly – promising trees, offering answers to many pressing issues. Now we start trading with paulownia wood. Our purpose is 7-8 years later the material of that tree to be rather popular at our market and the demand of it to be met mainly by buying the wood from people, having plantations of paulownia in Bulgaria. In April 2010 we planted test fields which we are able to show to the people who are interested. Pictures from the stages we shall post in our blog.

Even named after the daughter of the Russian Tzar and Netherlands Queen, the plant origins of China. It is also known in Japan from ancient times.

Unfortunately it is still difficult to find enough information about the successful paulownia planting. This article's purpose is exactly to fill in that missing. We did our best to select the necessary information and facts and, with our own experience, to submit them in easy to use form.

In case that paulownia shall be planted for wood, we need high, straight stems during the first season of planting.

Despite its indiference paulownia is a living creature. It requires care and love. In this article we shall describe the basic points in the process of planting this amazing tree and shall try monthly to inset with facts and pictures the procedures you have to do to your plants.

We want to note our great satisfaction from planting paulownia. The more you care for them, the more better they grow. It is a pleasure to watch how young paulownia tree grows as high column for several months. The pictures below show paulownia growthfor a year. The heigth of paulownia at the second picture is 5,20 m.

There is a direction in biological science which has proven its advantages and has been fastly developing more of the last decades of the twentieth century. It comes to getting cultures of isolated parts of plants which are generally called tissue culture. This term means the rearing in vitro (le in artificial environment) under sterile conditions, isolated cells, individual structures or different tussues and organs of plants. This method is for studying, reproduction and selection of plants. First introduced in the experimental biology, the method of tissue culture enters fastly the practical crops. It is based on the ability of the plant cells to be cultivated in artificial conditions, separated from the plant of origin. It's possible due to an unique property of the single plant cell – its "totipotency" – the ability to differentiate and its natural abilities of morphogenesis, which enable regeneration of whole viable plants when the necessary conditions are provided.
