Trees look great, Bob! As always 😊. How does the Changshou taste - like a regular kumquat or sweeter?

Thanks for the photos, Kumin! Can you do multiple grafts on one rootstock? Did you cover the graft or just use the parafilm? I have several rootstock trees that are too large to cleft graft, so I was going to resort to t-bud grafts. I recently tried a few cleft grafts, leaving the top two leaves on and unwrapped. Weíll see what happens.

Thanks Laaz - I remember hearing that now, though Iíve never tried one.

TFN, thank you for the offer! I would love to try one or two if you have them to spare! My tree is small and will take a few years to produce.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Juanita Tangerine

I recently acquired a Juanita Tangerine and was curious to know a little more about the tree/fruit if anyone has one. Iíve heard the famous story of Ms. Juanita and was curious about the flavor of the fruit.

Thanks, Bob!! I found a source for the Valentine - Iíll have to research the thong dee and will let you know. I appreciate your generosity very much 😊

Found a broken branch on my Tarocco from the storm last night. Will probably yield two good budsticks if anyone in Georgia (US) is interested.

What a fantastic idea, thanks Laaz!!

Thanks for all of the advice, everyone! Millet, do you recommend foliar or root feeding of Epsom salts?

Joe, I am zone 8a, but my trees stayed outside most of the winter, only going inside our unheated garage a handful of times when the temps dropped. The funny thing is, my eureka and Genoa lemons are all dark green, but my Bearss Lemon and Santa Teresa lemons are suffering. I will apply the Epsom salt mix tomorrow and see how it goes. Iím thinking of sending my soil off for testing, too. Just to be safe and on the lookout for future issues.

Iíve never sprayed mine either - itís used when watering (not every watering; Iíve only used it once this year).

14
FoliagePro

15
Thanks Laaz, my mix consists of soil conditioner and perlite only. I always water thoroughly as well. Iíve decided to stop using FE and only use Osmocote and FP moving forward. I only apply Osmocote once in winter, and FP is only during the growing season.

Interesting what you may get from seed 🙂

Thanks Laaz! Iíve actually only fertilized twice this year. What is your feeding schedule?

Citrus General Discussion / Boron Toxicity or Magnesium Deficiency?
« on: June 13, 2019, 05:50:59 AM »
Apologies for the noob question, but do the below leaves reflect boron toxicity or a magnesium deficiency? My trees are fertilized with Osmocote Plus, while alternating FoliagePro and Fish Emulsion. Towards the end of last summer, I stopped using FoliagePro and was only using FE. Now, Iím afraid Iíve experienced a nutrient lock out. Weíve had about 5 straight days of excessive rain, so theyíve gotten a good flush.

Note: my young grafted trees are still indoors, using the same water source (but were not fed FE) are all dark green.









2nd Note: the third picture shows new growth on a tree that almost exclusively produces dark red shoots that purple out before turning green. This new growth has been entirely green from the start.

Thanks for your time and any/all advice is greatly appreciated 🙂

Iíll let you know if I hear of anything

Following, as I have been mulling over getting one for awhile, but space is limited and I already have 20+ trees. I received NZL budwood from the CCPP, but the grafts were destroyed by my puppy before I could move them out of reach.

> ... Trifoliate orange, ... root well in 30-45 days,
Well, now we know that it is true only if you take the twigs on an immature plant.

And only in June and July with the highest probability. Mature twigs also root, but it takes longer and percentage is very low. Tested.

When you speak of maturity, do you mean fruiting age or green v. aged wood?

Question: can you root cuttings or budsticks without leaves? Iím looking at purchasing a clonerr such as this one for insurance on failed grafts. Thanks guys and have a great week!
