Re: HYB: Rot and Seedling Selection

Im hoping to use our climate to advantage.   Springs are 
fairly straight forward,  but we alternate between very dry 
and then wet and humid through the summers.   Winter is 
fairly uneven as well.   Rot isnt often a huge problem 
here, excect last year when we had excessive rain during 
the heat of July.

I was surprised how many I lost this March.  We had some 
very warm weather and then it was quite cold again without 
snow cover.  Interestingly on the seedlings that were 
misbehaving, it was only the center rhizome, all of the 
increases seemed fine.  And of course there is the 
possibility that this cross didnt appreciate being pushed 
as hard as they were. 

Well its so close, I imagine that Ill see what they look 
like anyway.  I may try and match anything I cross with 
something that does well in the vale.  That should help as 
far as rot goes.

Thanks everyone!
