Enter the enchanted world of Tommy Topper: a magical place of wizards, witches, pixies, and other supernatural and mystical beings. On Tommy´s 14th birthday, his parents tell him of his birthright - he is a powerful wizard whose roots are traced back to the land of Kranta, a faraway place to which Tommy can teleport to in an instant...with the right spell. However, the evil emperor Ling Cam has stolen the five magic items from the people of Kranta and wants to use it for his own purposes, intending to destroy the young and powerful wizard in the process. Kranta is no longer a happy place as a result, and it is up to Tommy, with the help of his Uncle Nick, the wizard Verlan, and beautiful pixie Princess Ryanna, to destroy the emperor and return power to the fallen king. Will Tommy Topper be able to use his newfound powers and magical items that he must recover along the way in order to bring back peace, harmony, and magic to the people of Kranta? 1.

You´re about to discover how to plant and take care of indoor and outdoor potted trees. A common method of transplanting small trees, particularly those less than six feet tall, is from a pot. While they may look the same at first glance, there are three different types of potted trees sold. Pot-grown trees are grown in a pot from the seedling stage on. This makes for less transplanting stress since the tree is planted with its original root system intact. Some potted trees are sold as field-potted trees. These trees were originally grown in a nursery field and later harvested with the original soil around the base. Potted trees are dug bar-root in the early spring and placed into a container using a special soil mix. Each type of potted tree has excellent survival, but they do differ slightly in their planting methods. Since the root system of a potted grown tree is not disturbed significantly at transplanting, they can be planted in the spring till early fall. Field-potted trees generally should be planted in the spring. These trees are growing in their original soil rather than a special soil mix; their growth may suffer if lift in the container too long. Potted trees can be planted once the roots are established in their new pot since most potted trees are potted in early spring; they usually can be transplanted anytime after late spring.

Night was beginning to fall in the tranquil mountain valley, and the long workday at the Topp family farm had come to an end. Fall weather had once again returned, along with the exploding colors of the tree´s leaves. The unmistakable sound of the elks´ trumpeting calls had also returned to the valley - announcing the beginning of their mating season. It was truly a wondrous time for the elk, but it could also be a very dangerous time; especially when the elk began wandering down the old wagon train trail from the mountains, down to where the early morning frost had not yet fallen on the tender green grasses. The Topp family - Jim, his wife Mary, and teenage son Rocky - lived on the farm at the lower end of the valley. The roaming elk foraging for food didn´t really bother the Topp family all that much, except when they had to occasionally chase one or two out of their vegetable garden, or the small corn patch the Topps would plant each year. But what followed the elk down from the mountains, shadowing the animals´ movements did.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Welch.
