Warren,

   Thanks for great presentation. Do you know where I can get a copy of the slide you did? I didn't see on foothill website.

 I have a voice recording of Warren's presentation. Its missing the first minute or two.

Not sure how to upload, so those who would like a copy pm me and provide your email address. I'll try to email them to you. File is about 22MB. It should be playable with any video/audio player.

Vincent.

What a brutal heatwave we had in socal this last few days. I was off at work and didn't realize it could get this hot. Now that the temp has come down to within summer heat what is the best way to help those fruit trees and seedling pull thru without dying. I am concern for some of my cherimoya seedlings and grafted cherimoya seedling.

I brought all seedlings and grafted seedlings into as much shade as possible. I'm hoping those in the know have a plan.

Thanks,
Vincent.

Possible sign of dampening, I had some seedling that die of similar result. From reading not much can be done of the effected plant. Keep it away from others as to not infect them also.

This is mainly due to too much water and moisture, not dry off fast enough. This allow bacteria to thrive.

They have different stuff, some are what you said. Those in this thread are tree waste mulch. You can tell by looking at them they still have some big chunk of wood chip on them. I got some in the past to cover over my grass that I no longer want to water.

Hello,

   The stuff in your first picture look like wood chips? those I would put on top of my soil, but would not mixed into the soil. I use the wood chip from LA as ground cover in place of what use to be grass in my yard.

What location is that?

Vincent.

Hello,

   I think you mean air layer lychee tree. Here is a link for longan, which is similar to lychee.

You can store pollen inside a small plastic container with lid or plastic wrap and keep in frig. They can keep about 24 hours, they start to go down from there. Dark container is better so you can see the pollen.

This item from Harbor Freight is a very good price, cut up to 3" wood. Not sure if they ship to Virgin Island.

Those are very good advice, and your fruit trees are thriving very well. I'm sure I can implement some of those in taking care of my fruit tree.

Thanks,
Vincent.

Wow, those growth looks amazing. Mine just started to have some leaves.
What kind of weather have you have since you grafted them?
how much water and how often have you fertilize?

Vincent.

23
Wow your tree looks very healthy.

Vincent.

Behl,

    Was hoping to see your grafting work of art.

Vincent.

Behl,

   That's going to be one hell of a tree for someone. Do you have some pictures?

Thanks.

Vincent.
