I always feed and water  to the roots.  The roots take up water and  nutrients, which are transported in xylem and phloem to the leaves. In the leaves photosynthesis takes place. No one has ever been able to explain to me by what mechanism a leaf can absorb nutrients sprayed on to it, since most leaves have a waxy layer to shed water, and openings on the underside to allow carbon dioxide in and oxygen out. Wetting the leaves  is more likely to induce rots and moulds in my opinion.

Lightweight. My brother was 3 weeks late and weighed 13 1b 8 oz. My mum had him at home, and when the doctor came the next day, he said the baby looked like a three month old.He filled the carry cot end to end. He used to have all the breast milk mum could produce and a bottle as well. He's a strapping 6 ft 5 now.

I've had two Jacqueline Postills. The first one was grafted and the graft failed. The second one a really cold winter killed. I haven't seen any for sale since. I have a self sown seedling, fingers crossed .
