What a crying SHAME! Dozens of Citrus trees wasted.
Yesterday I was at the nursery and saw two pallet full of citrus trees sitting outside near the dumpster. Dozens of them.They were lush and green and some full of fruit.
There was Calamondin, Blood Orange, Meyer, Variegated, Nave, and Kumquats.
They were 2-3 feet tall, along will taller and shorter ones. Some marked 34.99 and others 24.99. Yes they were marked down to 1/2 price too.
You know what they told me?
They are getting ready to dump them because they didn't want to carry them through the winter! That's right, just waste them.
I begged for them to just let me grab a few for free and give them away, and they said it was not possible.. They said they would sell them to me for 3.50 and 5.00 dollars each, but that can add up.
Since I had no room for more than just a couple or that much cash at the time, I was sad to have to leave them all behind.
What a crying shame:-(
