  • Tall Air-Layer Tale

    It is taller than my shed and me at 6' 6''. Whether it will survive is a different story.

    Very nice Frank! I want to do that with a few taller trees. Did you score that tree?

      Yes, the tree was scored, Art but I should have let the roots grow a few more weeks

        That is a whole lot of tree in that little pot.

        I sure hope it survives and does well for you Frank. Are you going to top prune it?

          Nope, no topping. The leaves will all fall out but eventually the tree should survive. It was repotted, of course.

          The tree is in bush form and about 7 feet tall. This shoot came out of the ground and I thought it would make a nice new tree. It is a Green Ischia.

        Aren't you being a little stingy with that pot size?

            Hi Frank,

            Why not just air layer these larger one's in #5 or #15 nursery pots?It takes me apx 90 days to fill
            a #5 and 150 days to fill a #15 but when they come off the tree they do not defoliate and are
            ready for dappled light within 7 days.

                  Nice airlayer Frank! Keep it in the shade for a few days and it'll be fine! I did one on my Negronne last year in July with figs on it and it ripened the fruit also! I only used a large Gatorade bottle! I'll be there in a week or so to pick it up! Lol
