Owner's comments

I accidentally bought 2 of these not realizing that Pink Lady's are really only recommended for zones 6-9. Should be interesting to see if they live or die. I took a page out of the Stephen Hayes Playbook and planed them by my brick house. Hopefully the heat that comes off the brick should be enough to keep them alive and allow them to fruit.
