Looks like the freakishly heavy first frost last night did them in. I'll be pruning back and bringing some hardwood cuttings to the swap from the following plants.

Becca Lynn
Texas Pink
Maya (limited)
Grand Marnier Pink
Versicolor orange (limited)

I will also have some seeds from a Versicolor orange x Unknown if you feel lucky.

The extra heavy frost also got my brugs in the midst of a flush. The leaves were frost bit. How can you tell how much to prune to make sure the cuttings are viable. I also want to have some to bring, but don't want to offer any that are damaged. Never had this to happen before. I always took my cuttings before frost hit them.

Hi Joe,
I hate to hear your brugs got frosted. were they full of blooms/buds? Also,When you take cuttings I would love to have some cuttings from your Maya and versicolor orange. Are you looking for anything in particular in trade?
Thank you.

Also Daisydo-- which brugs do you grow and what would you like in trade?


RE: have: lots of fresh brug cuttings for mtps

daisydo: Just feel of the limbs. If they are mushy, or the bark is loose, then go lower. Most of the hardwood should be fine. Once you get started you can pretty easily tell what's good and what isn't.

marianne: Of course they were full of blooms/buds. Isn't that always the case? I had easily a hundred blooms open that night and hundreds more buds in various stages of development. So sad....

Ah well.....swap fodder!
