New experiment

I planted some brugs in the ground this year! I chopped out more of the hated juniper shrubs. I can already see they like it alot, and are growing visibly in just a week! Santa Rosa is inground, Double Peach (a new 1' baby) and also a cutting from Peach Versicolor. The sad Cherub in my garden plot isn't doing anything new, just kind of sitting there. But I pruned the roots too, so it may need time to adjust.

RE: New experiment

The Junipers may have turned your soil a little on the acidic side and Cherub may not be liking the PH.

RE: New experiment

Diane, looking forward to seeing pictures of your newly planted brugs growing well in the ground! The ones I have in the ground do extremely well, but then they are noids. My named brugs are in pots because I don't want to take a chance that the gophers will develop a taste for brug roots! Those in the pots aren't that big so it isn't like I could take a cutting and plant in the ground. Good luck with Cherub.

RE: New experiment

I'll be sure to put up photos as they grow! Ruthann, the sad Cherub is in my veg garden plot at a community garden down the road, so no junipers there to bother it. Santa Rosa and Double Peach are in the juniper area, so we'll see how they do.
