    So how is everyone's orange tree coming along

    So how is everyone's orange tree coming along?

    It was started by the guy in Allentown that sells the tomatos and seeds. My friends and I check his stuff out when he has his tomato sale each spring... It was started in 2004.

    This was in June 2006

    Can you take a seed from an orange, put it in some dirt in a pot in your home, and grow a successful orange tree? Or do you need some kind of cross pollination?

    I dont know. I bought it after it was hatched. I dont even know if I'll even have oranges from it. One of my plant friends has one in case we need two to make an orange.

    I'll prep it over the weekend for it's winter sit in the front room. I'll remove some soil from the top layers and replenish it with something from foxfarm soils.

    I'll also prune any branches that will make it's shape weird. Another reason I remove some of the top soil is BUGS. Over the summer some may lay eggs before winter... By removing some of the top layers I suppose I'm removing the bugs too

    Who wants an orange tree? Just under 3 feet tall. It's very healthy and will be topped off with some new soil.

    Orange tree

    There is a lot of new growth on it plus it's been pruned to grow evenly.

    Who ever wants it has to really rake care of it. A green thumb type person Supposedly you can actually get an orange or two.

    If my mom was alive - I'd pm you in an instant - I tell you that woman could take a dead plant and make it come to life- I kid you not - even if I took care of it, I would kill it

    My mil has one and over the years has in fact gotten oranges out of it.

    I wish I could do that - I hope it finds a great home!!!!!!!!!

    That's all new growth on the branches. Haven't seen flowers on it yet. Not once.

    It's very healthy, why do you want to get rid of it? Why not take it to the shop and put it in your front window?

    Reminds me too much of a joke Has to go. Tonight I'll top off the upper layers of soil with some Fox Farm soil. I have a few people who will take it. Just have to decide who seems to have a greener thumb

    Black Mold

    Poor little orange tree looks like it's on it's way out. The person who was going to take it had no windows so I didn't leave it there. I sprayed it with some stuff that is supposed to help with the mold issue but I think it's a little too late.

    SAD! What happened? You 'spose your orange tree wasn't actually an orange tree at all? I mean the fruit looked like pea pods, how do you get oranges from that? OK, now Res, what was the joke that was the reason you had to put it up for adoption?

    I'm done with that stuff and the tree.

    I just started to neglect it. This year vicki did some veggies in pots.. I just stuck to the Gardeners.com Tomato success kit because I blog about it. They got new and improved models now Toys.... The tomato kit simply works.
