    Dormant scions for spring grafting certainly do, I can't say I've tried it with bud wood but I can't see any reason they wouldn't.

    Young seedlings last in the postal system so scions should fair even better.

    Im up for your best tasting plum/gage please and will bud onto the nectarine. Where does one send the wine tokens to ?. Think my opal looks a bit sad so wondering if it has silverleaf , canker or just worn out after long summer so not sure on using that. Did add some lime to lift ph yesterday.

    Sorry INRIP the only healthy plum I have is blue tit which had it's hair cut during the hot weather, the rest have terrible canker and I wouldn't risk sending out wood from them.

    Oh you know me, just the best tasting, most decease and pest repelling apple, pear or plum, which I can eat raw and cook with and will keep until next summer

    Failing that, anything interesting

    Has something tickled your fancy? I should do a list for people really shouldn't I.
