Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Ichangquat other than 6-7-2

I read somewhere that many of their plants were from B.Voss.
Czech on-line nursery http://www.rakytnik.com/index.php/rostliny/citrusy/mrazuvzdorne-druhy-a-hybridy/385-c-ichangensis-fortunella-ichangquat has 6-7-2.

Just "other edibles" Sheehan - so that would be all inclusive of vege (Asian or otherwise) and herbs (for cooking), herbals (naturopathic medicine stuff), rootcrops and then a buy/sell/trade for all of them would be good.
Yeah I think other edibles would work :)

I wouldn't top a lychee unless it was to save its life.

Shape can be fixed with proper staking.  I once saved a pear tree with a 2 inch caliper and shaped like the letter "C."

It took some strong ground stakes and rope, but with enough steady pull, the heavy arc was fixed after 2 years and it now stands straight.

Yours isn't that thick and looks fixable in the same fashion.

I bought it from Eisenhut, Ilya, I don't have many other options:-). I believe it has not flowered there.

Having a horticulture only sub would prob be meh - well just my take on things as I generally don't fuss with plants I can't eat. Yep, flowers = pretty but only if my bees like them.

I wouldn't top the lychee. If it survived the beheading, it would take forever to form a decently shaped tree...let alone fruit. I agree with Cookie. Chris

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Heard of the raw egg rooting method?
« Last post by darkcoolboo on Today at 01:36:15 AM »
I was looking up ways to root plumeria cuttings, when I found a strange method. Basically, you bury a raw egg in a pot and then a cutting on top of it.

I originally wanted to have the vegetable forum be a sub forum in this forum. I can't remember the reasoning for why I made it separate anymore though. I think it may have been because we didn't want the forum to be too cluttered.


I had hoped that Off Topic would have been a place to post about vegetables and other gardening topics but we all know how that turned out.

Should we do a vegetable sub forum and a miscellaneous plant sub forum as well? Maybe a "plant only" off topic?


If I do create a tropical vegetable sub forum, should it be condensed into only two boards? Vegetables and Buy, Sell, Trade?
Yes I think that would be great!
Im sure discussion and buy sell trade for veg would be fine as many vegetables are root and leaf crops eg sweet potato.
Misc plants or plants only off topic will also be cool I think :)

Pics? If it actually is blooming there is probably nothing you can do.
