Spud, just read the interesting article about the smell of rain. Interesting! There is more to rain than I imagined.

I don't remember the blossoms of mine ever being killed.

Comment by Daniel W on May 23, 2014 at 5:56pm
I think the problem here is it warms then frosts then warm then frosts. So the apricot blooms then wham! is killed. if it didnt wArm early, the blooming might be later and not be frosted. we keep trying tho. In Idaho you may have more suitable weather.

Daniel, thanks for the info.  I didn't even think about the old ones  being root-bound, but should have.

I think apricots will grow here.  I grew one for about 6 years before it died, but I don't think it's death had much to do with the weather.  This year, I've modified the soil to the best of my ability and have learned not to plant them too low.

Spud if you are able to grow apricots, I envy you!

Last yeasrs trees might be too root bound. i dont know. Ive had some end of year trees do well. I cut the winding roots so they spread out, and mulch and water well the first year. they might be set back for a year that way but survive for me.

I've been shopping for an apricot tree, but the prices are high.  $45 to $100 in this town.

There are some for $20, but they are last years trees.  Do you guys think they would grow OK?

What has been your experience with buying trees from a distant nursery?  Bare-root or in containers.

Daniel, LOLOLOLOL you are too funny.  Just think of it as being a conservationist.  You are helping the wildlife to thrive.

That's funny Daniel.  If they knew who provided that salad, they would probably thank you.

Barbare, my deer and rabbits respond very well to companion planting. It's their version of an all you csn salad bar.
