|Orange currant I doubt
will survive. The stems are supposed to harden off at some
but that hasn't been happening. These have been tough to get started because they are
brittle and we do experience a bit of wind in the afternoon.
This one snapped off a couple times so it now looks like a bush, but it appears happy.

mysteriously died. It appeared to be hardening off and the
There is new growth coming up from the bottom though so we shall see.
Blue Elderberries have survived after a pretty rocky start.
The stems are thickening up and they look pretty good.
The main stem on both these plants snapped off during afternoon winds so they are now staked.
|This Nootka Rose is fairly
healthy. I expected to have a little better luck with these
guys than I have had. I am not holding my breath.
||One Nootka is dead and this one is on it's way out. It has been so hot this year that I thing it is murder on new plants. I also think I might change the watering to overhead instead of drip. The plants are from Oregon after all|
|November, 2006. The bit of green on the right is a Nootka Rose. There's a bit on the left as well. I wrote the supplier about the Little Wild roses and the rapidity of which they bit the dust. He sent me two more plants - potted this time. The Blue Elderberries (center back) did ok. The currants (back left and right) I doubt will survive the winter. We shall see come spring. I'm wondering though if I shouldn't go with overhead watering next year to up the humidity a little. After all, these plants are from Oregon.|
