This Quick!

This is what you expect to see when you plant your cuttings. This particular cutting was planted on June 3, 1999 in my back yard in SE Pennsylvania. Remember we had a bad drought here in Pennsylvania in 1999 and this cutting was planted away from any water, so it did not have the TLC is should have had. I watered it whenever I remembered which was only about twice a week. The clone is 58-280 but the growth is typical for any other clone.

a customer sent me this file, to show how fast they grow in one year in South Georgia.
