New Growth Or Old Wood?
Never tried to overwinter Ghosts before, bhut I did this year. Native varieties will sprout new growth from old growth that doesn't show any green under the bark when scraped. Will Bhuts do the same?
It was 80 degrees yesterday, so I rolled the plastic back on the Ghost hoop-house and did a little scraping, finding no green on the above-ground material However, just below the soil line, I got green, so the roots are alive. Wondering if I should just cut these off to the ground, or wait?
Another one I have in the greenhouse has green stems showing a little leaf growth.
