Re: Garden update
My rex gets little sun since its planted on the north side of the house. It will get some late afternoon sun from 4:00 to 5:30 ish during the longest days of the year. The sun did not seem to cause any issues. My rex ssp ficto may have direct sun issues?? Not sure if it's the sun, public water or combo. The ficto gets sun from 10:00 am to 1:00. So this sun is strong. It appears the new, unfolding leaves are less tolerant of direct sun. The cause may also be direct sun when temps are warm, like above upper 70's. Not sure yet.
The way to go is rex/macabeanum hybrids. I have far too many in my basement. We need to meet at Joe B's and I can give you some.
