I just grafted some Pickering scions, and was wondering how long should they be shaded before being exposed to full sun?

I keep them shaded until I feel 100 percent it wonít die. How are you shading the grafts? Brown paper bag?

What other varieties are you growing hawkfish007? Are you growing Gary? I was trying to find someone frowing Gary in California to get some info on it. Apparently in Florida Gary doesn't produce too well, but maybe its a bit different in Cali.

I will doing the same to a couple of my trees. In order to have some good branches to graft on to...What month/time would be good to prune back heavily down to the stump?

That is a very hot commodity in California.

I ran across this page on YouTube. His videos are super funny and informative... I get a good laugh out of them. Thought I should share share. On this video he liked Kathy.

I got 2 Kesar scions that I prepped up a couple of days ago. Send me a PM if interested.

Yes. The Ligularis are still alive and growing. I saw a flower in late February maybe? I did not take a picture of it because i figured it was finally going to continue to flower but that was the only one i saw, I haven't seen any other flowers since that one time . I recently just saw the first flowers on my Frederick a couple of days ago so I will check later today to see if I see any flowers at the top of my pergola for the Ligularis.   

If I can get some budwood, looks iike I'll be the first to try it here in S. Calif.

Any updates jbclem?

Why is it not advisable? I have some Kauai Sugarloafs that I am getting ready to put into the ground in a week or so.


Aside from these trees being too young to hold fruit and the growth getting there any other negatives? Can the tree possibly just die due to exhaustion or anything like that?

I had this scenario you are going thru RNGuyen. I was waiting for late July to remove all the fruit from my Manila seedling. I removed all the fruit (to get vegetative growth) and a grafting I did in April of PPK just came to life which I thought was dead. Pretty crazy how it lasted such a long time without any activity.

Yes, I prepped two Sweet Tart scions as I have that tree on turpentine. The buds were nicely swollen. Both scions are pushing now on a manila seedling.

The Lemon Zest was the only success out of 12 scions i ordered from Florida. 

Yea Simon i have had to pinch back little buds constantly on the Sweet Tart grafts. I didn't know about that until i asked Behl about that in person as i was unsure how the effect would be. Wish i would have known that when I grafted the 12 scions from Florida, I probably would have had more than one success as some scions stayed green for more than a month.

I grafted Lemon Zest onto a Manila seedling back in late just threw out its first flush of leaves maybe a month ago. So it was green without much action for 1.5 months. Also grafted 2 sweet tart scions in late May and the buds are just now pushing thru the buddy tape. I donít put a brown paper bag/plastic bag or anything to protect the scions but I am thinking of changing that up to see if I get results faster than waiting 2 months.

Has anyone had any luck? My vines are still growing strong, still no flowers.

is there a bug spray for this or manually squash them?

I recommend you do some nighttime recon.

Looking good there. Hope those avos sprout up. I acquired a few new varieties from green scene recently. Hopefully they will grow well this year.

Mark, yes you can hand pollinate. You can use a q tip or or something soft or a dead bug trapped in a spider web. You can then light brush against s male flower then come back to pollinate female flowers

You can also just pull off a Male flower and walk around and pollinate female ones later on

Out of curiosity...Which varieties did you get from green scene? I missed it this year...I have attended the two previous years before.

Put me down for 4 bags. I am really hoping the pick up will be in Buena Park.

Those who ordered and got them, I am sure you are getting good takes??

I don't consider myself an expert grafter as this is probably like my 5th or 6th time ever doing it but....So far so good Behl! Thanks again for the scions and buddy tape!

Iíve used both. I canít tell the difference. I feel like Bioflora has gotta have something in there thatís good because my dogs love Bioflora...little bastards love to eat it. So I keep buying Bioflora.

I bought a GEM on a salt tolerant and possibly on a clonal rootstock. It was tiny for my taste but was the last one left at sub tropica. I transplanted it in a 15 gallon after bringing it home. It is full of flowers. Is it a good idea to pinch off the flowers now, or wait till it forms fruits and pinch off the fruits?

Why not just put it in the ground?
