Capers in the PNW?
Wondering if anyone else is growing capers (Capparis spinosa) in the PNW ?
Do you bring them inside or can they winter outside? If outside - do they need protection? I read that they will survive where olives can be grown although some olives are hardy to zone 8 while others are not so hardy.
I know the buds are normally what are harvested and pickled although do you personally harvest the buds or let it flower and harvest the berries? I think if I get flowers this year that I will allow mine to flower and harvest the berries for the seeds.
I bought my capers bush a couple months ago and would like more information so I can plan ahead for winter.
