Is anyone here in Cascadia growing hardy almonds, such as these from One Green World: https://www.onegreenworld.com/Almond/374/

I have a couple of them that are about 3 years old, 10 feet tall, seem healthy, but have not bloomed yet. I am wondering if I am doing something wrong?

I have a Q-1-8 that was making quite a few almonds until it suffered a goat attack. I'm hoping it will be back in action next year. I think it was a couple of years before any fruit spewed up.

I've got a couple of the varieties on the page you linked to, but they're still pretty young and not yet fruiting.

Matt - I am up in Roseburg, and excited to hear about your almond varieties! You get a tad warmer than us (depending on your elevation) but perhaps not enough that a little microclimate adjustment wouldn't be sufficient. Do report back!
