You bought a fruit or a tree?

I got scion from scion exchange last Jan.
The graft had 1 flower, but dropped before it was mature.
I'll strip leaves in a week to force more flowers.

I've not heard of air graft. Do you mean rooting a cutting?

Do the owners get to extend property line to new expansion?

Try adding co2.

Ask neighbor for pollen.

I did not sign up. They passed out flyers a few days before they came. I did not get in trouble for that many citrus.

My friend in Westminster, city next to my city, had his citrus treated a few months ago. Rumor is that there will be a 2nd treatment after 3 months initial treatment. Just a rumor for now.

Yes I miss  Coconut, even if I could only understand half of what he posted, I think due to my language barrier, the Whitman fiberless seeds I got from him now have three small fruits for the first time, can't wait to try them out.. M

There is nothing wrong with your English. There is no English barrier.
He seems to be a hyper person so his writings have a lot of hyper bole.

The agricultural department came last week and used 3 different chemicals on my 8 citrus plants to control CP.
Those chemicals only last a year so I'll be expecting them every year. Not Good!

How do you keep them alive in winter?

Wont germinate because it got irradiated before shipping overseas.

Maybe the mangosteen fruits I got came from Mexico.

I got 5 germinated seeds. Ended up with 2 seedlings.

I see fruits in local stores. A bag would get you 3-4 seeds.

The goal of a raised bed is to keep the root crown dry during a flood. It doesn't have to keep all the roots dry.

We call them roly poly.

Rule 1 is no compost nor mulch nor fertilizer nor water at trunk.
There are only big roots at trunk to hold the tree up. They don't need extra help.

You should remove all those fertilizers and mulch around the trunk. Dump sandy loam there to pretty it up.
I use plaster sand from HD. It dry hard.

As for roly poly, you can pick them up and put in zip-lock bag. No need for chemicals.

If you graft on 1 year old seedling, remove flowers.
Your tree is big. You can get fruit from new scion this year.

A lot of times people don't want to sell you their mother plants so they mark it up to ridiculous price so you won't be asking about buying them.

After further readings I stumbled on Forkert budding. 90% take with big rootstock and prepared buds on big scions.

I bought 2 loppers for friends. You can't get better deal than that.

Mama said I can't air layer on her small tree. If I air layer 5/8" branch she won't have a tree left.
I've looked into misting bed for cuttings and I would go this route if I wanted more trees.

I want to graft seedless guava onto my big tree and other people big trees. Literatures said T-graft is best but I can't find a picture of it. T-bud is terrible for guava.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: SoCal - GEM AVOCADO + Recommendations

I called a couple nurseries for you. One said they don't carry Gem. Another said they are not allowed to sell Gem to home owner. Only orchard can buy Gem.

Carmen patent ended this year so they recommend Carmen. They said it's better than Gem.

Maybe get Gem scion if you really wanted one.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / T-Graft method
« on: April 16, 2018, 05:03:15 PM »
Hello all,

  I'm having no success with grafting guava. One article I read said that cleft take is low, below 10% where as T-Graft take is as high as 90%.

So far I can't find a picture of what a T-Graft looks like. Anyone has a picture of it?
