No need to be ashamed for the delay. Things happen.

I would use 1 central rebar stake and trim all branches to 6" from trunk before evacuation. Trim the rebar to be not higher than the tree. The rebar would flex and absorb some energy.

Beautiful area.

If there is a high percentage of it hitting your area, you should trim the trees drastically to save them. Either have standing short trees or laying on the ground big trees. You pick.

Move all the trimmings and trash into garage so they wont beat your house up nor your neighbors.

No germination for me. I need to go to local store to buy more Mexican mangosteen. Yours?

307
Has anyone received seeds yet?

308
They tasted the same since Paxton is a branch on the PM?

309
You could go to his web store and order seeds right now.

310
He was doing a bark grafting, but replacing the bark with plastic wrap.

311
I was only kidding about digging them up.

312
Dig them up and give to your neighbors. They might plant next to your wall so you get half the tree.

Nitrogen fixer absorbs nutrients from dirt to grow. There is no free lunch.

If the tree is on a slope, there is no danger of the root crown getting flooded. So dig down to plant.

315
I put a 4' tall in ground last April. It sets 10 wax apples 2 months later. I fertilized with 6-4-6.

I put another 4' one in my friend's yard last June. 2 months later it set a few fruits. I don't know if my friend fertilized.

They decimated 3 young guava plants here. I've been hand picking them off the tips.

Mangosteen roots are pretty poor. Are you air pruning their roots?

I put mine between damped paper towel, inside a zip lock bag. I zipped the bag 3/4 of the way. 4 seed seems to sprout after 2-3 weeks.

Do you fully zipped the bag?

Update?

325
Fuerte is Spanish for 'strong'. You'll have endless pruning to keep it small.
