Hi everyone sorry I've been away for so long but with work and the website this summer has just flown. Here is a question for everyone. Are the Moragne hybrids any harder to keep than any other plummie? As most of you know I import 1000's into the UK each season and the only plants we seem to lose are Moragne hybrids. The one we lose most of is Katie wirh Bill and Mary not far behind. Are they any more succeptable to cold or damp?. We keep them in the exact same conditions as all our plummies but these are the ones that die every time.We have had a bad year this year in the UK with very little sun but most plants have done very well except the Moragne hybrids. Any Ideas ???

Stuart I have taken the liberty of making a new thread for your question which I think deserves some attention.
I certainly have not seen any of this in my area, but then I am in near-ideal growing conditions. Others may share your experience. I am sure we will hear from them.

Hi Stuart,

Here on the west coast of Southern California I have always had a dicey relationship with Bill Moragne. The other Moragnes seem to do okay for me, and do tolerate the cold that comes my way as long as I don't allow them to go below about 38 degrees.

Hi Jean, Thanks for that but we dont just lose Moragne's because of the cold they just dont seem to like the UK's less than ideal growing conditions. Even the ones we import during the summer we lose a lot of. They just seem to shrivel up at the top and then go black and soft. They are kept above 70 for the summer except the odd night that might dip to 60 but so are the rest oft he plummies we keep in the UK and we dont lose many of those at all??
