Trying Another Lychee...
I lost two beautiful Lychee trees in the winter of 2009/2010...trusted a brand new(anti freeze spray) product that didn't work for me...ended up losing them both :o(
At first I wasn't going to replace it...but I was at Lowe's today and found one for $25 and couldn't pass it up...so long story short it came home with me and now its planted. Its Mauritius (Lowe's buys their Lychees from Pine Island) their tag is still hanging on the tree. Wish me luck!
I built a 'windbreak' as per recommendation from lycheesonline especially since I'm coming around the windiest month for me...March. I used burlap which lets a lot of air and sun through but keeps the wind from tearing up the very delicate new growths...Plus hopefully it will be that much easier to cover/protect next winter with the frame already set up.
