There's another winner in the Hudson's Golden Gem thread, and Viron, you've got private mail disabled, so I must announce the $#@! thing to the entire forum. Or do you read everything that's posted soon enough that I needn't bother?

Thanks,

mh

Marsha, “Viron, you've got private mail disabled…” I just happened to be looking over ‘this side’ of the forum when I noticed that comment. With ‘private mail enabled,’ the problem has become folks sending their questions directly to me. I found the following this morning:

“Hello Viron,

The following is an e-mail sent to you by [T] via your account on "HOS
Forums". If this message is spam, contains abusive or other comments you find offensive please contact the webmaster of the board at the following address: info@homeorchardsociety.org

Message sent to you follows
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I went to the Canby Scion event last weekend & picked up some grape
cuttings to root. Generally speaking, how long does it take the cutting to
develop a good enough root system to plant in the ground outside? Can
cuttings be transplanted into large pots outdoors or do they need to grow
in the ground?

Thanks.”

…This is something I was concerned about and it’s a prime example of a question that should have been posted to the general forum. Lon would be their best bet. And, answering someone gives them my private e-mail, which I’d rather keep private.

With several past e-mails I’ve re-posted them to our general forum as ‘questions’ and attempted to give an answer there, but as I’ve made a personal policy not to respond to such direct contact, I will not personally answer the one above. When I have answered such direct questions it’s often begun a back & forth in which the ‘dissemination of knowledge’ doesn’t benefit anyone beyond the person asking the question. So I’ll hope this sender will re-post their question/s to the general forum …and if no one responds… I’ll take a crack at the answer there :|
