Not sure this would be any use on trees, but it did work on plants in pots.

" Ranunculus piliferus photos from Mountain Man Dave!"

Outstanding!

David,

David Thank you for your beautiful photoraphy.  It took me a while to find this thread.  I am amazed at how much your mountain Landscapes resemble our Syskiyou range in southern Oregon and Northern California.

Arnold,

Cox Orange Pippin is a very uncommon apple!

The only nursery I am aware of that sells it is Trees of Antiquity, in Paso Robles, CA. [formerly Sonoma Antique Apple Nursery, in Santa Rosa].

They grow theirs on MM111.

Cox are uncommon outside of commercial orchards, even in the UK - they are susceptible to every disease known to man, plus other problems. They are grown because of their unique and very popular taste.

What I suspect is either a cross or selection of Cox' Orange Pippin is grown in NZ and shipped to the UK when our stocks are out of season - it looks very similar, slightly glossier, but the flavour is very poor.

Many Lilium bulbs are quite good to eat, too.  I've tried the flower buds, buy much prefer Daylilies.  I am especially partial to the open flowers of Hemerocallis citrina, and the inferior ovary that looks like the flower stem is the best part!

This is my Lilium 'Louise'.

Robert

Thanks,  I will have to try and research the root stocks on the apple trees I have.  They are all grown as a Belgian fence espalier.

I have Cox's Orange Pippin, Esopus Spitzenberg, Arkansas Black  and  Calville Blanc d'hiver.

Kevin,
your valuable collection of rocks and troughs is very impressive. Some of the troughs
must be very od and rare. Thank you for showing.
Trond, your laboratory sink looks very good. I wish, that the Shortia plants would grow
better in our warm climate, one plant on a peat block is the last of the many plants I tried.
