Re: Some recent photos of zone pusheritis.
My guess is that Hayward is a 10a, possibly 9b location. What does a guy do to push zones when his expected winter minima is in the 25F - 30F range? At that point, it's not so much zone pushing as climate pushing. Trying to grow a plant that likes lots of heat, for example, might be "pushing" things for you. Perhaps a coconut palm, for example. Or, maybe pushing in the opposite direction. Trying to grow a plant with a minimum winter chilling requirement.
All that said...
Your plants, as always, look great!
These days, there aren't many folks who post here with any regularity. Thank you for being one of the few who still use this platform.
