dolgoBob Wells Plant of the WeekDolgo Crab Apple – The Dolgo Crab Apple is widely adaptable from zone 5-9 and extremely cold hardy so with good solar aspect and heavy mulch it may survive in even colder zones.  This tree originated in Siberia. 

This crab apple was imported from Russia by the plant breeder, Dr. Niels  Hansen of South Dakota, and introduced in 1897. “Dolgo” in Russian means “long” and refers to the shape of the fruit. The highly-flavored crimson fruit is about 1-inch in diameter, is olive-shaped and rich in pectin. The vigorous tree grows upright with spreading willowy branches and has reddish-green, dense foliage.

It is resistant to scab, cedar apple rust, mildew and fireblight. This very hardy apple ripens in late August or early September and is excellent for jellies. It makes a great cider as well either blended or rose toned if used as a single variety.  It has high sugar content of about 18% and will ferment out to about 6.5-7% ABV.

Find this plant and more at BobWellsNursery.com – Bob Wells Nursery specializes in anything edible: Fruit trees, Berry Plants, Nut Trees, as well as the hard to find Specialty Trees.

The Duck Chronicles Episode Thirty Three – A Poor Little Stranded Ducks Plea

Find Out How I Got So Muddy in Episode 33

Find Out How I Got So Muddy in Episode 33

Today on The Duck Chronicles Episode Thirty Three – A Poor Little Stranded Ducks Plea we are about to deal with a muddy mess.  The temps are on the rise, sheets of ice are falling off the roof and everything will soon be a muddy mess.

For now though there is still a lot of ice and the birds are having a difficult time moving around.  Slipping and sliding is the rule of the morning.

We also had a poor little duckling that managed to strand herself inside the hole of a cinder block.  She wasn’t moving and I was afraid she suffocated but as soon as I pulled her out she was good to go, all be it filthy with mud.

The ice cleats I am mention in this video are called Stabilicers, if you deal with ice I highly recommend them or something like them.  You can find them here, http://amzn.to/1BOhoxt

The Duck Chronicles Episode Thirty Two – An Icy Day for the Ducks and Charlie Too

Today on The Duck Chronicles Episode Thirty Two – An Icy Day for the Ducks and Charlie Too we are dealing with snow that has just barely melted and is now refreezing into a thick coat of ice.  The weather girl has called our weather bipolar, this is a good description.  I consider it to be more accurate to call it like dealing with a scitzo psychopath with multiple personality disorder though.

I also had to rescue one of the adult ducks today.  One of our Cayuga drakes was splayed out on a sheet of ice on one of the swales and simply could not get himself out of the ditch.

Things should warm up and melt off tomorrow.  We now have cold miserable rain coming, followed by a day with a high of 75, the next day will have a high of 34, bipolar indeed!  I love three seasons in Texas, and then there is winter!

The cleats I am wearing in this video are called Stabilicers, sorry I couldn’t remember the name while I was filming.  You can find them here, http://amzn.to/1BOhoxt

Episode-1527- Grafting, Root Stocks and Tree Propagation

Various Types of Grafts, These are Just a Few, There are Many More

Various Types of Grafts, These are Just a Few, There are Many More

Recently I did a show with Kevin Hauser about apples and we discussed that he did all his propagation with “bench grafts” and always uses “M111 Rootstock” which basically caused a listener to say, WHAT DOES ALL THAT MEAN?

Point taken!  Sometimes when you know a subject well you just assume people know what you are talking about.  The truth though is I am still learning about tree propagation myself.  I know a lot about tree care, tree pruning, tree planting, etc. but making new trees I am new to myself.

This might actually make it worse because as I am new myself I am likely worse about using terms and figuring others know what they mean.  So at the request of this listener I am going to talk about making new trees today, the methods of doing so and what some of the terms mean.

Join Me Today As I Discuss…

  • Thee primary ways to propagate trees
    • From seed
    • Via Grafting
    • Via Rooting
      • Softwoods
      • Hardwoods
      • Layering
  • What are root stocks and what do they do
    • Main ways they are created
      • From Seed
      • Stooling
      • Layering
    • Functions
      • Disease resistance
      • Size control
      • Vigor
    • Types of grafting (not individual grafting techniques)
      • “Nursery” grafting
      • Over grafting
        • On grafted trees
        • On in ground root stock
