Re: loquat again

After I sent the link I discovered the Champagne is one of the older
varieties and not as much in favor as it once was. I know nothing of
the others except I've heard good comments about Big Jim. I've got the
loquat chapter from Morton's "Fruit for Warm Climates" in PDF. I can
send it if you want it. The information re varieties is dated but the
rest of it is good stuff.

I have figured out where I'm going to plant it, and in fact have
plans to dig out a couple of other ornamentals so that I can plant a
pluot and plum too. I was thinking about the nectaplum- but worried
about maintenance (the whole spraying for peach leaf curl thing :
( doesn't really excite me). Apparently plums are more self
sufficient here.

Going to go check out a couple more nurseries tomorrow to see what
they've got....


Oh- PS I did move my huge agave last weekend. It seems to be doing
fine. God was it ever heavy!!! That thing must hold about 20 gallons
of water in it's leaves.
And today I moved my spice bush into the back garden (dug out some
kind of small cypress that never has done very well and now was
brown on all the tips).
