Re: [nafex] apricot shock treatment

Gordon, it could make my head spin, this tree apprenticeship. Do I make it 
colder, or hotter?  Since your idea is easiest I'll go for that. I've got 
very a similar greenhouse right now out of a half of a 50 gallon opaque 
white plastic cola drum. that is housing all my grape and currant 
propagations in our garden. It hit 101 degrees today inside this so I opened 
it a bit. but the principle is the same.
thanks to both you and Victoria for the imput.  Del
