Juneberry from seed


#21

Oh cool. I grew one outside a few years back and it only made two flowers. I probably had it in a less than ideal location. The one I put in my mouth to try gave me a surprising sensation, though! They really work! Do you plan to use all of those for toothaches…?


#22

not sure what Ill do with them, if you keep picking the flowers it will keep producing… I was thinking about adding them to a batch of wine next summer, would make for an interesting taste sensation!


#23

Checked the fridge and my lee8 seeds are sprouting already, was hoping theyd stay dormant for another month or so. Planted all 9 of them to a single 2gal fabric pot with coir today. Smokey and aronia havent started sprouting yet… Ill post a pic once they break ground.

Derek what is your take on lee8 vs other juneberries. What is your favorite?


#25

Sorry I cant really say much about others yet, the only one Ive had substantial production from so far is smokey… The others were year 2 last year, should get a few more berries this year. My dad sprayed my JB30 with roundup last summer and killed it, hes 80 and has a thing about grass growing around bushes in his yard, through the mulch, not the first time hes killed stuff I have planted there. He also killed off their rhubarb plants last summer, for the 2nd time! Right now all I have planted is Martin, Lee8 and smokey. If anyone has or would save me some jb30 seeds next summer Id appreciate some!

Hey Derek,

I’ve tried to find a decent price on brown grow bags but they’re so much more expensive than standard black. Have you found a decent deal?

I use brown root pouches. I noticed price has gone up about 40% I used to pay 5 bucks for 20 gallon, now they are 8 bucks each.

That’s exactly what I’ve found. It doesn’t matter if it’s Greenhouse Megastore or Amazon. I even went so far as to contact manufactures in China to purchase 100 or 300 and I would’ve gone broke. Here’s the price quote I got:

I noticed a niche for 15-gallon so that’s the route I began with. With shipping that put me at more than $4.50 a bag and I haven’t even begun shipping the items. I couldn’t compete.

Not that you’re saving a bundle but $6.50 a piece. Gotta buy 10 of them:
