    Tried these from Raintree as well… planted them in a soggy spot by an old compost pile where everything else was going nuts… and they languished until rabbits ate them.

    Hoping you’ll have better luck on a different type of site!

    • Mixed luck so far. One of them is not growing much, the other put on several feet of growth it’s first year. Lots of buds coming, so I am optimistic for that one. It gets several hours more sun than the struggling one. Both are planted in solo-hugelkultur beds of their own, so they should have good moisture without being too wet.
