Hi Mikkel,

Ugni Molinae ripens around October here, if you remind me next October, I can send you some seeds.

Hi Mikkel (sounds Danish to me)

I would just like to tell you that I ordered two plants that were sent to me from England to Denmark last summer. It was not that expensive - and you will be able to enjoy the nice berries much sooner - I guess from seed, it may take 6-7 years. It is no problem to send plants within EU (BREXIT... hmm..).

My plants were ordered at The Forest Garden-Budock Water-Falmouth- Cornwall TR11 5ED, Tel 01326 250090, http://theforestgarden.co.uk/

Best regards
Sune Nielsen (Mr)

Tak Sune!
no jeg er ikke dansk. Men jeg kan tale dansk.
Thanks for the link. Can you grow Ugni in your garden?
Supposedly it is only half hardy here in northern Germany. That is why I am looking for seeds. I want to screen for cold hardiness.
But I need plants as well.

Thank you again!

Mikkel

Hej Mikkel

Det var så lidt! Så tænker jeg, at du kan forstå hvad jeg skriver. Mit tysk er ret elendigt ;o).

Lige nu er jeg lidt nervøs for mine chilenske guavaer, da vi har dagsfrost og forholdsvis hård nattefrost i sigte. De er pakket ind i halm, så ser vi. Vi har desværre ikke have, så de er plantet i en krukke på altanen. De så ud til at trives sidste år og kom godt i gang med at sætte nye blade. Jeg tror godt, at det kan lade sig gøre - bare man lige beskytter dem mod frosten. Det har været ret hårdt vintervejr i store dele af England i år, så det har sikkert ikke været helt ideelt der.

Men ja, jeg tror altså helt sikkert, at du kan gro dem hos dig. Sønderjylland er lidt mildere end resten af Danmark - og det er derfor at det område sammen med Sydfyn er de steder i Danmark, hvor man kan gro pære. Danmark ligger på nordgrænsen for pæredyrkning. Du vil sikkert også kunne dyrke morbær, figen, og sikkert også nogle citrus, måske endda et appelsintræ ;o).

Held og lykke

Mvh
Sune

Hej Sune,

jeg vidste ikke at man kan ikke gro pære i de fleste deler af Danmark. :(
Tak og lykke for dine Ugni!


Mvh
Mikkel

Hej Mikkel

Jo, det kan man nok - men kommerciel dyrkning betaler sig kun i den sydlige del af landet, og det skyldes klimaet ;o).

Ja, held og lykke med dine fremtidige Ugni ditto!

Mvh
Sune
