Would I be able to ship bareroot plants during the winter? We get winters that stay in the 40's quite often and drop to mid 30's sometimes and rarely but sometimes hit right at freezing
Also thanks for all the information, interesting thing I did is I accidently snapped a small limb off one of my basils and it had a few baby leaves... It couldn't have been more than 3/4 of an inch big and I stuck it back in the soil and it seems to be making it very well
Thanks for the tips in growing organic potatoes
My biggest goal though is to start a large fruit garden and I don't know If its possible to grow the same way with fruits? I heard when I was young that fruit seeds die during refrigeration and that most fruits in grocery stores have seeds that aren't alive anymore... Which might even be a wive's tale (considering my mother told me LOL) and that I once planted a papaya tree when I was 10 by grabbing a handful of seeds from the papaya my mom bought and put the seeds in the ground. I never actually took care of it either, I forgot about it and several years later I was like "what's growing off this random tree... HOLY COW THATS A PAPAYA" lol
Anyway my biggest concern is I don't understand fruit types and seeds, I heard most seeds from a grocery store organic fruit will give a different variation of the same fruit that normally doesn't taste as good... And I want to try to understand all this, is there any research anyone has bumped into to understand this?
My best friend's neighbor has an orange tree in his front yard, let me tell you, those have got to be the nastiest oranges I've ever eaten in my life.
