    Q: How long have you been growing sarrs?
    Three full seasons

    Q: Describe growing environment and # hours of sun (just a few words is fine)
    My plants are grown out on our deck, receiving full sun all day long.

    Q: Describe dormancy practice (just a few words is fine) ie: garage, fridge, etc.

    I clip all my plants dead leaves off, clean up the soil, and put them in our unheated attic near a window. They receive a fair amount of light, with cold enough temperatures to keep them dormant. I check very often for mold growth, etc.

    Q: Do you have more or less than 10 sarrs?

    More.

    Q: How many of these have you had over 2 years?

    All but one.


    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    Q: How long have you been growing sarrs?
    Going on 4 years.

    Q: Describe growing environment and # hours of sun (just a few words is fine)
    Full sun during the growing season. They get 6 to 8 hours per day. In summer, it gets extremely hot, but all the Sarrs tolerate the heat very well. They are grown in individual pots and are top watered every day.

    Q: Describe dormancy practice (just a few words is fine) ie: garage, fridge, etc.
    I let them slip into dormancy naturally by leaving them outside. Then, in the dead of winter I place them in my unheated garage. I bring them out again late winter.

    Q: Do you have more or less than 10 sarrs?
    More than 10.

    Q: How many of these have you had over 2 years?
    About 7 cones. If you count individual divisions alione then it's more than 15.


    Thanks for the opportunity!
