Re: Is this a pre flag?? or pre pre flag?

It'll be a small flower but I realize what to do for next time. For the past 2 years It has been growing year round in same container. It stays inside from end of Oct-goes out in May

Re: Is this a pre flag?? or pre pre flag?

Thanks Mushtaq, it's the Manzano(apple). I haven't measured the p-stem in a while. I'm guessing it's about 8 feet.
