Yangmei (Myrica Rubra) Group Order - trees all gone

<< < (136/143) > >>

Brad, thatís awesome you have them adapted to full sun. I bet the roots are growing out so hopefully itíll take off next year once it gets more established. Thanks for the picture!


I had a shade on it most of summer and just ditched the shade a few weeks ago since it seems like the worst of it is over.  Although it was 0% RH and 92F and super windy here a few days ago and it took pretty well. 

I put a few chicken turds on it today and will start fertilizing more in spring, it should take off next year. 

Hereís a quick update of my original Biqi from the group buy. Itís quite big now and I should have up potted it a long time ago but Iíve been too busy so itís been stuck in a #5 pot for much too long. I finally up potted it this week. The entire pot was completely jam packed with roots so I had to carefully untangle roots that were beginning to circle and also cut some roots. Hopefully it doesnít shock the plant too much. Hereís the rootball

And hereís my Biqi tree

Its a monster! 

Hi Simon,
  Thank you for all the info you posted in this thread. I live in the SF bay area and  new to the Yangmei tree planting, but I am very interested in this topic. You were talking about the grafting technique by
using  M Californica. Is it Myrica Californica tree? How big of plant of Myrica Californica did you use for grafting? Are they all growing well now?

 Best regards,

I will soon begin making incremental cuts on the Biqi rootstock and M Californica top in order to gradually decrease dependence on the portion of the plants that I will eventually be severing.
