Thanks for heads-up re the 7s. I try to give away my trees on this, and almost everyone has better soil than me.
I might have M26, not sure. I bought MM111 years ago, instaed of M26. But most of my MM111 trees are doing so poor, I wonder if it was mislabelled. Or maybe my soil is too sorry even for 111.
