Dick Westland also has the P. jishanensis in culture. With mine I have taken 2 scions u. grafted on P. lactiflora – roots – am…Read More

I used to have several P. decomposita grown from seed in the past, but the only one left here is also somewhat struggling. The advise you give about growing them are things I also try doing, but it seems…Read More

These runners are allowed to grow a little stronger and are separated from the rootstock in the fall, leaving a young plant without grafting or pollinating. Over the young plant I give a large pot from October to March (like a…Read More
