Got it, Jerry.

---------- Original Message ----------

Hello Everyone,

I really appreciate that Lawrence is working with us and is keeping a
close eye on the net. When I write emails I use Mozilla Foxfire then
when I send it goes to Gmail and then they forward to ibiblio. I went to
attach that picture and got the following message from Mozilla Foxfire,
"Many email servers do not accept messages with large file attachments.
The file size restriction varies depending on the mail server
configuration. While you might be able to send a message with a large
attachment, the receiving mail server might refuse to accept a message
with a large attachment. This is all beyond the control of Thunderbird".

The file size of that picture was 1.38 MB so I opened it with _Picture
It_ software and compressed it reducing the size to 25 kB, that's quite
a reduction. I hope the picture quality and definition is acceptable, we
shall see. On the last send of the picture some of you reported you did
receive it some of you didn't which tells me, after thinking about it,
that Gmail is passing it on and IBIBLIO is passing it on and the problem
is in servers after ibiblio. Will those of you that reported not
receiving it please let me know if you received the smaller size and
received the attachment. Then I will have learned that in the future I
need to compress pictures before I send them and shame on me for not
having learned this before. I guess some folks are slow learners. :-)

I've embed the picture again from the 25 kB size and also attach it and
lets see what happens. So again the picture is of Gennadiy Eremin and
his son Victor taken in Krymsk, Russia at the Krymsk breeding Station in
their peach test plot.

Hi everyone,

What are the chilling requirements of morus nigra?
1. Minimum chilling hours needed to ensure fruit set the next year.
2. Maximum temperature that 'counts' as chilling hours.
3. What conditions trigger the plants to break dormancy?
4. What are the lowest short-term and long-term temperatures the plant will

Background information: As mentioned in a previous post, I'm in zone 5/6
and have morus nigra in 87 litre (23 U.S. gal) pots.

I'm weighing my options:
A. Bury the plants in winter, just like some people do with figs. I'm not
sure if morus nigra is hardy enough for this.
B. Put the plants in an unheated, detached garage over winter. I think it
would get far too cold in January and February and would kill the plants,
although I haven't documented temperatures yet.
C. Leave the plants outside until around Christmas to satisfy chilling
requirements, then put them in a cool basement, which is presently 12 deg C
(54 deg F), and hope the plants don't break dormancy before I can bring
them back outside.
D. Greenhouse: I have a mekeshift greenhouse setup in my cellar door
stairway. The temperature fluctuates, but I can control it to a point. The
benefit of having the plants in the greenhouse is that I think it could
reduce the number of years it takes the plants to bear, by making them
slightly healthier and more vigorous (this was pointed out by Lee Reich).
But, perhaps I can't have my cake and eat it too.

Any input or experiences would be appreciated.
