Say, Tony,
I haven't seen your post about it, so I was just wondering if your source for your TX Star was THE nursery in GA? (I don't dare print the name anymore because it seems a lot of people get a heartburn when I print it here.) Of the five that I got from them last year, four died to leave a hollow hole in the soil of their pots, and the fifth one that I thought was also dead, sprouted out in early Summer and is now overgrowing its place in the greenhouse, that I will need to bring it down to the lower greenhouse.

Appreciate the info.

Chong

You do a great job growing plants, Tony, they look great! Chong, on the other hand, kills more plants than anybody I know. Just joking, Chong, my friend!
