I figure there ought to be something more useful than the poncirus that would grow here, but the only way I'm going to find it is to build a big cold frame for my seedling nursury and some semi-protected outdoor environments (lots and lots of south-facing masonry walls) and then start slaughtering four-year-old trees on an epic scale. I've been saving kumquat and meyer lemon seeds, but that's as far as I've gotten...
