sells dead tropical seeds.
Deal with them
at your own risk. I sent them $45 and I got dead cherry of the rio grande
seeds. Their reply was, send the seeds back and we will send you a refund
less shipping costs. I planted the seeds and waited more than a month and
none germinated. How can I dig up and send back rotted dead seeds?

I recommend dwarf
rootstock for citrus in southeast Texas
There are no true
dwarfing rootstocks available for citrus like there are for apples, however
flying dragon trifoliate rootstock will reduce the size of citrus trees by
about 40%. Instead of an eventual height of 15-20 feet, dwarf citrus
trees will reach 8-10 feet high and wide. They can be planted 8 feet
apart. The fruit is of excellent quality and equal size. You
don't need a ladder to harvest the fruit. The trees I propagate for
myself are all dwarf. Trees are easier to protect for extreme freezes.
Dwarf is the best rootstock for container grown citrus.
blood orange disappointing
in SE Texas.
blood orange is supposedly one of the best tasting in California. I waited
patiently for 5 years for my thorny tarroco branch to bear fruit. The fruit was
only pale orange, NO streaks of red, and bland tasting by the time we had our
19F freeze around Christmas time. I think it's too late bearing for SE Texas. I've
had much better luck with moro and sanguinelli. I had a 5 gallon bucket of moro
fruit with streaks of red last year by Christmas time that tasted good. This
year's sanguinelli fruit was excellent tasting by Christmas and the streaks of
red turned to blood red orange juice with a sprightly good taste.

to protect citrus trees from freezes
Bank dirt around the trunk of your
tree. I split a nursery pot and fill it up with dirt. The ground won't
freeze. The top might freeze but the dirt will save the rootstock
and the graft. The tree will grow back in only one year!
Before the freeze
Just after the
somewhat damaged, tree still alive
Spring leafing out March 1
nearly all leaves but leafing out in the spring
Fully recovered in July, no blooms this spring
You can also cover your tree and put a heater or
light bulb under the cover. If you think ahead, you can make a structure
like this one to make covering easier

I can now be seen
cycling around the neighborhood on my 54 scaring dogs and children as often
as he can. I always wear a helmet though.
My English 1889 Royal Mail. It is one of
the better examples of a late ordinary as it has ball bearings in the head
and cranks and a very ornate mustache style handlebars.

This is a Star "safety" highwheel. I wish I had one
