awesome news for us citrus growers!!!
Some of you may have read my post a little while back about how I bought a Meyer and Navel citrus trees. I live in western NY, and every year around this time, the owner of Potratz, in Erie Pa, goes to FL to a tropical plant conference. He brings back many awesome tropicals including citrus, and some gorgeous orchids.
Anyhow, him and I were talking about how this citrus ban has really put a hurting on the mail order nurseries. He was telling me that while he was in Florida, he was talking with some citrus growers and they told him that this ban may be lifted very soon! Wouldn't that be amazing!!
If I am on the hunt for citrus, I try to hold off until I can go to Potratz and buy them. They are very reasonably priced and the trees are in great condition. However, if your looking for specific varieties, you may not find them.
Maybe some of the FL members here can shed some light on this ban being lifted. If I here anything more, I will keep you all posted. I plan on being in FL this July. I am hoping that the ban will be over by then.
