All the potted persimmons, figs, Sugarcane, strawberries, bamboo, che, Pakistan mulberries, rooted Thai and White Pakistan mulberry cuttings are outside and they got a good jumpstart with Urea Nitrogen 46-0-0.
Just recycled deck boards, they last a long, long time, the harberfreight casters might not. I bought a big box of h.d casters, used and new ones for $25.00, used them all.
All my inground tree’s are-done blooming, except the persimmons, they are just showing fruit buds and leaves.
All my Mandarins,pomelo,s, oranges, lemons are having fruitlets, about 30 trees in all, hope to get something again.
Andrew, your pandan plant is hanging for dear life, will see if I get lucky.
Very impressive Tony. I’m sure you’ll have a great, diverse harvest this year. I don’t know how you make time to take care of all your plants. Did the Thai mulberries grow for you? Mine experienced some winter damage but is leafing out and forming lots of little fruit regardless.
I’m glad I’m not the only one driveway gardening. You know that extra heat off the pavement helps ripen those figs! My neighbor came up to me last year and exclaimed “you must really like figs” pointing at my 20 pots on the driveway.
I love your wheely carts. Strong work there. I’d have thought you were gardening in the tropics with the sort of stuff you have growing. I have some small pandan plantlets if you want them.
Yes, they are, both, because their are no bees to pollinate, you have spray with Ga 3. During several days during January and February the tree’s are going outside during 60* or higher temps, the bee’s are there in the afternoon.
I have to find clean straw. I don’t trust the ones sold around here. Worried tgat there are leftover chemicals used on this straw. Maybe, I think too much. Need @Olpea to chime in here.
My original bed has two mistakes: - planted way to close to one another like 6-8” apart. After 3 years, it’s a bloody mess.
Never had time to put straw in before it was too late. I don’t gave a bad slug issue (yet) but gray mold has started to be an issue.
In the bed, I’ve never pressed any runners. They have grown into one another like I said, a mess. This year, I dug up and gave them away. I try to make space between each plant, very time consuming even for a small bed like mine.
Hi Tony, that multi-graft Asian pear tree looks amazing! I’m trying to do the same thing after seeing yours.
My two flowering pears have leafed out for several weeks now, but we’ve been having some pretty rainy weather here in NC. I have scion wood for Korean Giant and Harrow Sweet and want to do some bark grafts on to lower limbs. The ornamental pear is 10+ years old and close to 20 feet in height.
Should I go ahead and do the grafts now or wait until we have a stretch of warmer weather without rain? Also, do you have any tips on ensuring they take? I appreciate you sharing your garden with us!
