Well it wasnt in my plans i promise… i went to a garden centre to buy a bit of fertilizer and couldnt resist to bring with me this big feijoa that was in the clearance section… lol… 2.20meters high at a good price

Just planted it in my feijoa hedge space… :slight_smile:


#265

6 feijoas plants in this hedge :slight_smile:

And my little feijoa seedlings (original fruit from Colombia)

Grumixama

Atemoya

Cherimoya

Tamarillo tree and fruitlets

And scratching my head how to fix the traditional water tank in my property… apparentely is leaking water and had a few quotes for repair and are asking 5.000 euros!!!
Need to find a solution as i have been watering all this with buckets!!!


#269

I recommend Thoroseal, a cement-based waterproofing slurry. Used it when I built my koi pond in 1992, still water-tight!!!


#270

Thanks


#271

I will check it


#272

So, today i went to check the seedlings, some of them was time either to transplant to individual pots or take the risk and put them on the ground as the weather as cooled down

. TAMARILLOS - i sowed to many seeds into this large pot, its overflowing now!!! I took the bigger ones, like 20 and put them on the ground, must have like over 100 left in the pot. Lol


. FEIJOA - all seems well

. LOQUATS - some are already quite big with good root system, put them all in individual pots for now, must have.like 50 other, need to think what to do with so many seedlings

. RED FLESHED GOYABA - lets see if they survive until next season

. CURUBA - loads of seedlings

. And finally i checked the shangri la mulberry cuttings, they seem well, hopefully they are rooted. Will stay in pots until next spring


#273

I think its fair to assume that my shangri la mulberry cuttings have rooted! I have roots coming through the pots… :slightly_smiling_face:
10 extra trees :slight_smile:


#274

Ok, ive transferred the shangri las cuttings to individual pots now… 10 out of 10!! They all rooted…
Staying in pots for now until i decide the final location in ground

@Luisport one of these is for you. I"ll take it home and prepare the packing. Will try my best to arrive by you safe. PM me your address.
I"ll give you this one, easier to ship. Any problems get in touch

In the meanwhile i bought some cuttings of a turkish beautiful pink mulberry, waiting for them to arrive and hoping i get lucky rooting them as these ones. Mulberries are either easy to root (shangri la, oscar) or really difficult (nigras, pakistans, white pakistans) for me
Turkish pink mulberry


#275

@Luisport your package is ready :slight_smile:


#276

Thank’s a lot my friend! :blush:


#277

Ive just sent it through registered express mail!! Should arrive in 1 day!! I"ll PM you the tracking number.
Abraço


#278

I sent you a PM
Thank you very much!
Abraço!


#279

Thank you! I had the same experience with rooting success. I wish there was a resource where I could check the variety before I purchase cuttings. The Pakistanis never rooted for me, thanks to @Livinginawe I can confirm that Shangri LA/Mai #60 and World’s Best all root well. Besides Oscar, can anyone suggest other easy rooting varieties?


#280

Would love to get my hands on Mai #60 and World’s Best, unfortunately Bryce declined to post to the EU
