I avoid that problem by taking a razor knife and cutting the tape lightly....almost through. The elements usually take care of the rest and I dont strangle any scions.

Looking for 25 swingle seed or seedlings. Changing up rootocks experimentally. Some combinations in my environment have got to be faster growing than poncirus & FD.

You must be proud. I know how you feel about dogs that are family. I had to put down my two companions this year. One was 17 years old and one 18. Sad time for me. I went the other direction....I shall have no more.

You are so right. Rebudded this am. Bark still slipping good. Hard work budding in ground rootstock. I have a little cart that has my tools in it....rolls along thd row...but still hard.

Citrus General Discussion / Bad news
« on: May 15, 2019, 09:08:08 PM »
I had to have some help grafting this year. I hired a highly recommended fellow. He grafted a 50 foot row of in ground poncirus. In looking at the buds and the absence of new growth, it appears that he used blind buds. The budwork is good. Buds are green and they took. Any way to save this row? Besides...if you want a job done well...do it yourself.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Any opinions.....
« on: May 14, 2019, 07:24:47 PM »
This appears to be working great. Buds are stretching parafilm and potting shows new growth. I beleive this is the easiest grafting I have done in a long time. I am gonna do it again to see if I was just lucky .....

Yes I am interested. I have found that to really evaluate a rootstock is to use it in the environment that one grows citrus in. Different nuances that environment and native soil seem to affect rootstocks differently. Let me know if you have extra seed when the time is right.

Sounds like a good venture Joe. I hope it pleases you. I am fond of Yuzu and wish it were a faster grower....but perhaps it is slow for a reason....seems to me that the slowest growers are the most cold hardy..

Swingle is a faster growing rootstock than poncirus or cleo mandrin. Makes a bigger tree too.

Very possible. I have been using FD & standard poncirus for years but I am looking for another rootstock. Poncirus works very well for me but as you stated it is a slow grower......

Yes you are right. I am old school. Enough till I do not trust ebay sellers. Have not bought any citrus/seed but hear the dissapointing sagas from those that do. If you know about citrus you reconize lots of lies and scams on ebay....

Spoke with Bonnie. Slowing down some. I did tell him where everyone is and that he would be welcome here. His citrus savy is remarkable..he is 88 years into it. Hope he visits us

Thanks gentlemen. Was taking a chance that someone still had some viable seed. I have propagation chambers that I use to start seed regardless of winter/summer. Full of FD and standard poncirus at present. I will watch when fruit is available.
