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?
Marsha, I'll do what I can about both " title="Embarassed" /> thanks, Viron
Marsha, â€œViron, you've got private mail disabledâ€¦â€ I just happened to be looking over â€˜this sideâ€™ of the forum when I noticed that comment. With â€˜private mail enabled,â€™ the problem has become folks sending their questions directly to me. I found the following this morning:

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?
â€¦This is something I was concerned about and itâ€™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 Iâ€™d rather keep private.
With several past e-mails Iâ€™ve re-posted them to our general forum as â€˜questionsâ€™ and attempted to give an answer there, but as Iâ€™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 itâ€™s often begun a back & forth in which the â€˜dissemination of knowledgeâ€™ doesnâ€™t benefit anyone beyond the person asking the question. So Iâ€™ll hope this sender will re-post their question/s to the general forum â€¦and if no one respondsâ€¦ Iâ€™ll take a crack at the answer there
