Citrus General Discussion / Compost heating for greenhouse
« on: December 13, 2019, 04:22:39 PM »
I need your opinions or advices about compost heating . From what you can read on the internet, it is really cheap and ecological way to provide heat. The compost inside can reach a temperature of up to 80 degrees C. Do you think that in this way in 6b zone in winter you can heat a small greenhouse of plexiglas and polycarbonate (about 2m2)? Of course, this is not about high temperatures. The idea is to keep the temperature in the greenhouse around 5-7 degrees C, suitable for wintering olives, pomegranates, citrus plants etc. I choose this option because for me it is not possible to connect electricity and coal heating is unhealthy and quite dangerous.It is an effective solution? I look forward to your advice.

Best regards,

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Persimmon (Diospyros kaki) in Poland?
« on: November 16, 2019, 05:34:53 AM »
I planted this tree in March this spring. It is cultivar "Muscat". It has around two meters height. Since May it has begun to grow and even bloomed. It grew weakly. It didn't fruit due to cold May. Now it hasn't got any leaves, but some twigs is withering away. It is wintering. Krakow is situated on 6b zone. Persimmon can withstand frosts. How cover  it for winter? Maybe it cope uncovered? How care about it?
