Hi Sandra,
      I'd have to agree about climate. Microclimate too. You can even see it
year to year if you get much different weather from one year to the next.
For some reason, they just don't seem to grow as well in a dry season. no
matter how much you water them, as they do in a rainy season.
                                                               ........Bill
