    Hi Lardman, do you have a pear tree scion? I would like to graft it to my Quince. Also, which apple trees do you recommend for Kent region? I have an allotment so it needs to be dwarf/semi dwarf I guess. Kids love red sweet crunchy apples.
    I would really appreciate if you can spare any scions and obviously cover any cost.

    I should think so, probably able to get you a scion from all but the concord.

    Check you're allowed to put trees on the plot, not all can. Something on M9 / M26 on
    well tended plot soil should be fine down there. If the kids love red, crunchy apples you'd probably be best looking at things like Red Devil, Discovery , Katy or Spartan but don't exclude Kidds Orange Red, I have Spartan and KOR if you want scions of those.

    Pm me your details I'm sure I have some stamps left.

    Hi Lardman, could you spare a scion or two of Kidds Orange Red please? Seems to be hard to find around these parts.

    Jamie, You've asked for scions on 3rd January and were told that you need to have made 50 posts before you can ask. https://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gr...ml#post1635312
    You said then you would make more of a contribution to the forum!! Must try harder.

    Veggiechicken,

    Better to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission.

    Im trying to learn about gardening and growing trees, im trying to preserve heritage fruit tree varieties/genetics and and im trying to get a small community garden orchard up and running in an area my father and grandfather stay in.

    Must take yourself less seriously.

    Then I shall remind you of the Forum Rules about asking for seeds and plants. They're not MY rules, they're the Forum's Rules.
    https://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gr...nce_76437.html Repeated requests will be removed and may lead to a ban.

    Its your choice - be more active on the forum or stop asking.

    Hi,

    You would be amazed at the amount of people that join and then request stuff with varying reasons (including super sob stories) then disappear once they get what they want. People here are immensely kind and generous and it just isn't fair for people to take the piddle hence the rule.

    Oh and if you contribute a bit more you will find out VC isn't a serious chick at all but she does have a pointy stick
