Temperate Fruit Discussion / Loquat from seed
« on: October 20, 2019, 05:39:52 PM »
I have loquats growing from seed. How long from seed to fruit for loquats?

Has anyone ever rooted Jujube cuttings? I have tried 3 times with no success. I would love to have Li jujube.

Do you have a yard recycle waste near you? I can go by and they would let me have any wood pieces before they mulch it.

Thanks Bomand! I have lots of 5 gallon buckets from my hydroponics days. I will use the buckets if they are not too large next fall.

Thanks Millet for deleting it. Do you have any recommendation on the frost the frost protection?  I really want my trees to make thru the winter. Next year I have lots more to plant out. Most of my trees are only a foot or so tall and I was advised not to plant them this year. I also have seedlings grown from seed that I will plant some out next year. I might try the Plant Protector for the seedlings next year.

I have not seen a honey bee in my area for a few years. I do have mason bees, carpenter bees, wasp and hornets. I will be putting out mason bee houses this spring.

Keep in mind that air is the insulator( best insulator in the world) so a double layer give you insulation while a single layer has no insulation propertyes but will get warm if the sun shines because of the greengouse effect.
That heat from the greenhouse effect can radiate a few hours after the sun is off.
Bubble wrap or any type of transparent plastic wrap with an air gap sealed in between is a good insulation and you also get the greenhouse heating  effect during the day.
Think of stirofoam insulation.Its the air trapped in the stirofoam that insulates ,not the plastic itself.

The styrofoam sounds like a good idea. We can get snow and ice during a winter.
This is a little off topic but what is up with all of the RogerShula quest post in citrus about nothing that has to do with plants.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Frost Protection
« on: October 19, 2019, 08:08:21 PM »
Well it's getting a chilly outside so I wanted to ask opinions on frost protection. So far I only have 4 that will remain outside this year. 3 in the ground and one in a pot. I was looking at Agfabric but does it really help on those really cold days. I was also looking at a MIgardener video and he wraps his trees in bubble wrap and a garbage bag. A few years ago I used a light and a PVC small greenhouse to protect a meyers lemon. I saw this on pinterest. I might build my pvc covers like this.

Kevin how long did it take from seed to fruit? Interesting looking fruit.

Has anyone ever used the charcoal to grow your plants. It sounds very interesting.

Is Tai Tri ever used as a root stock? I have about 4 or 5 seedlings growing.

Daintree a lot of us did not know about the no no list. We did not even know you needed a permit to ship and seeds. Is there any way we can pin a list in the citrus forum? Maybe a post stating that it is illegal to ship seeds without permits and no citrus into the USA. Everyone here are not citrus experts some are here to learn. I know that I did not know this until someone posted it on one of the threads that I replied to. You see these seeds cuttings and etc offered on Ebay and Etsy so you think it is OK to buy.

Is there a Taiwanica lemon and a Taiwanica sour orange.

Here is a page about this sour orange. It is the last one on this page. It says down to 5F.

Thanks Bomand I new that they had relaxed the rules on the import of a very small seed quantity, but I did not know you still had to get a permit.

My finger lime seedlings have sprouted. I know they are slow growers but I hope they get a size on them within a couple of years. .

How large did your plant get when it flowered? I found this response on the Daley's Nursery site.
Black sapotes can be complicated in terms of pollination and some trees will not produce flowers that are self fertile. If your tree is flowering but not setting fruit try growing another with it.

Is Marrs hardy in zone 8? Are you saying you put 50 scions to 3 trees? Your mixed drink looks yummy.

I had to repot my Tai Tri and the root system was so long.
This is the one that I will plant in the front yard next year.

My Tai Tri seedling is growing pretty fast. I may plant it out next year. I think this is one that I will plant in the front yard. I may also plant Swingle in the front yard also. How does Swingle taste?

I can hardly wait for my 2 finger limes and my blood lime to start baring fruit.

I enjoy looking at them each year. I wonder why I have never seen the female lunar moth. I have only seen the male in the yard. My goodness, I did not know they were endangered.
This is a wiki pic of female
