Citrus General Discussion / Interstem grafting.
« on: November 30, 2017, 04:33:55 PM »
This type of grafting is used a lot with apple tree's. For instance m111(almost standard). with m27 (dwarf). Can this applied with citrus? F/D with a standard citrus full size tree rootstock?

Millet, are you using urea pellets and than adding it to water to spray? Do you spray urea before spraying with Tweet 20 to seal in the urea?

I don't have the luxury of a greenhouse, so i have to grow mine a little different My garage door fully opens to 80" max. All my container grown tree's has to stay less than that, they are also on dollies for easy in and out. I shape my tree's for that reason. If my tree's are very healthy with a decent root growth i will prune mine more drastic, i am talking young tree's here, that need to be shape.

I still have a copy of his grafting skills on the tree you are just mention. That was a fun forum, you can pick-up a lot of knowledge from those guys. I still have contact with a couple of the old timers.

If it grow in Arkansas it will certainly grow in California. I bought a red jabo from Adam and it is doing pretty good to say the least.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Turmeric !
« on: August 05, 2017, 01:00:43 PM »
I am growing Turmeric and ginger also for many years but never use any.I was going to use it as candied ginger.
I am looking for a Pandan plant but can not find one. I was told there are several different kinds, well that screw me up.

Well i can send you one or can send you 4 for the same price because shipping will be $10.00. You got to have a little more than one. What if somebody offer you budwood!!!. Be ready.

Susanne, do you want me to send you a small tree?

I have 4 or 5 little tree's that are about 3 years old and are ready for grafting. N/W Arkansas.

Citrus General Discussion / Santa Teresa leaf?

Millet the grafts that i did with your budwood are doing great, 4 out of 4 not bad!
Got one question, the leaves on one Santa Teresa looks quite big,is this normal?

Bought some sionwood from Frank and grafted them on my 4 year old Mr.Minh atemoya. Out of 3 pieces got 2, which is not bad. One graft is also being air- layered, do not know if it work.

Yes, i use those pots for most of my new grafts, first year, maybe the next year before repotting. I bought those pots on e/bay several years ago. I believe i bought 2 dozens. I love them. I have several grafts started as you can see in another picture.
