Well it seems my Moringa tree (AKA Horseradish/Drumstick tree http://enviro.org.au/article_moringaTree.asp) cuttings from Greenharvest have failed to root.
I planted them about 7-8 weeks ago, and after querying the good folks at Greenharvest as to what might be the problem, they have sent me 4 replacements cuttings, free of charge, no questions asked. I hope it was a failure of the original cuttings, and not my planting technique, as I really want to grow these trees, and they are supposed to be super easy to germinate.
Hopefully the replacements will arrive today or tomorrow and I can get them in the ground, as enough of the growing season has already vanished. Just hope it’s not too hot as they’re supposed to be planted when it’s cooler. We’ve had several days of Mid-30’s temperature, but today has started with a cold wind, and the temperature is 22 degrees – 10 degrees less than this time yesterday.
if anyone else has any advice on getting these to grow, I’d love to hear it.
