Well it's been 5 days since I potted the Granny Smith air layers. I have them in one gallon pots which is way too small for them, so I'm having to water in the morning and evening. But they are still alive and flowering. I don't think they missed a beat. I'll most likely give them a few more weeks or until they grow strong roots. until I plant them in their permanent location. I gave them a little 12/12/12 fertilizer two days ago and can see the difference already.

I am going to cut this branch off whether this works or not. It is an apricot tree.

You think like I do. Why just let it wither away, see it will produce roots first if so the you're a leg up 👍

Don't know if you noticed or not but potted and bare root apricots have been going for crazy money this year. I haven't seen any sales on them either. Maybe sales on potted come October or November, but right now crazy money.

Nope, haven't noticed. I have more than enough apricot trees. Most I got through the County Conservation District. Last year was the first year I got any fruit from them. This year there was not a single blossom.

When I do buy trees, they are bare root ordered online. The idiots responsible for the zone ratings have us listed in a zone that is warmer than we are. The local vendors carry trees for that warmer zone and they will not survive here.

All the prices have been skyrocketing the past two years.
