There was an apricot tree in Bozeman when I lived there (it was a good-sized tree and had barrels of fruit), and a friend tells of a lemon tree she used to filch fruit from, also in Bozeman. If the roots are protected, a lot of stuff will survive and even thrive that aren't supposed to make it in that climate. The orange growers have discovered that the trick is largely to plant own-root rather than grafted, if you need winter hardiness.

For some unique reason, the is some absolutely wonderful soil in some Bozeman/Spring Hill areas.. Go to Belgrade and you will harvest rocks! (Lots of people use raised beds their.)

Yeah, in Belgrade I couldn't claim to have soil. I had so many rocks that to drive a steel fence post, I had to dig a hole first. It's glacial deposits and old West Gallatin riverbed, I think, so pretty much nothing but stones. Get over toward the East Gallatin and it's the other way around, deep soil and hardly a rock to be seen.
