Goodmorning, one and all.

I would appreciate any input from fellow gardeners in Southern
California as to how they have fared with macadamia nut trees. We in Van
Nuys live somewhere between USDA 9 and 10, Sunset 20, and usually
experience one or two nights of frost in early December. Our "typical"
summer...not this year's...features many days over 95, with a large
majority of those warm days with humidity in the low 20s or high teens.
