Nate, do you realize the type of image you send by the language you use? Your words indicate the quality of your mind.
   I do not ever want to have any thing to do with someone that is that vulgar.

Folks - When Richard Ashton offered pomegranate cuttings I asked him if any
might make a go of it in Long Island's zone 6-7, and he had two that he
thought might possibly. I received four cuttings in February and followed
his instructions. All four leafed-out and rooted, and when it was warm
enough I moved them outside. A few weeks later one suddenly failed, I don't
know why, but I am left with three pretty little trees ready to go in the
ground.

Thanks Richard, I will keep you posted on their progress. dylan

Lon - I thought scoring the shell would be as good as popping the hinge (and
easier), but apparently not. dylan

Dylan, you might want to give them a year or two more in the pots. Most
trees gain hardiness with a bit of growth.

He also shared four cuttings from 2 cold hardy varieties with me, in 
eastern Mass.' zone 6. The two that I put in brand new pots sprouted 
nicely, and the two that I put in a previously used pot rotted and 
died. I think there's a lesson there. Of the two that sprouted, i 
gave one to a friend, by way of diversifying my risk. He didn't get 
around to planting or watering it, so it died, too. The fourth is 
in my back yard. It has grown a bit since I planted it, and looks 
pretty happy, although I think it would prefer more sun and less 
rain. This winter, I plan to put a fence around it and completely 
cover it with shredded leaves, since snow cover isn't reliable, In 
the spring I will rake the mulch over the rest of the orchard. 
(Since I have a lot of leaves to dispose of every fall, this will be 
very convenient.)

I also thank you, and will keep you posted.

Thanks, Steve. Maybe since I have three I'll try one in the ground and
maintain two in pots as insurance. dylan

Sometimes when you plant trees, you give them lots of fertlizer (and
alota roundup) and what happens? Well you give them WAY too much for
their own growth (you try hard enough) and they end up withering and
die. It happenned this year actually. I had a growth of palm trees.
They looked really promising, they seemed to have quite a few growth
spurts, the leaves seemed to come on really strong, and they looked
like perfect specimens for grafting purposes. I couldn't even put'em
on the parent tree, cuz there was a sudden extreme drought (no rain,
god forbid) and they just whitered away to nothing. It goes to show no
matter how hard you try with trees, in the end even with good solid
stock they seem to not be able to make it.

As a youth there was a story I use to tell my friends. We use take our
4 wheelers out on a breeze, hitting the trails and all. We use to make
our own trails through the woods, and a buddy of ours had a leaky
engine. The bastard never fixed it, and what happened? The foilage
that was there, never grew worth shit! We went back 2 months later,
and there was all these dead ferns, and what not. We noticed a
squirrel throwing down a few acorns (probably to gather later for
winter) but they started to grow (and my god they looked promising...)
and they just whitered away to nothing. They really could of been
something. But cuz of our buddy cruising through the forsaken woods,
those damn trees amounted to nothing. I look back on it now, and I
still go through those trails. Either way, around the same spot that
they grew, we found a bunch of oak trees at least 12/13 years old, and
they grew strong, but where are trails where...well there wasn't
anything there...I wonder why.

I talked to my buddy Riel about it, and all he had to say is he went
back month after month with his leaky engine, and he polluted it to
nothing, cuz he couldn't fix his goddamn engine (it prob. would only
cost $400-500 for an overhaul) to expensive in my opinion. Oh
well...those cousin trees of his prob. did way better off, maybe I
should transplant them in my area, cuz they'd prob. grow like fire
trees (and we all know how those grow)

Have a good one (I'm sweatin my balls off...naw not really, it's just
damn hot where I am)

I looked at the Van Well Nursery website and would like to know if anyone in
my area (northeastern Arkansas-southeastern Missouri-western Tennessee) knew
of such a good nursery in our precincts? I had a bad experience with Autumn
Ridge last year. Thanks.

I also received 4 cuttings from Richard, 2 each of Kazake and Salavatsky.
All 4 cuttings rooted easily indoors, and were transplanted outdoors in the
ground in my blueberry orchard just before hot weather kicked in. One of the
Salavatsky plants died, but the other three are growing well. Kazake seems
to be much more vigorous than Salavatsky so far, but both appear to like the
hot dry weather we have had lately.
