You will receive 1 scion wood only (ie. a cutting from the parent tree). It will come packaged in a moisture sealed & labelled bag. While ideally it should be grafted onto your existing tree, or planted as soon as you receive it in the mail, the scion may be placed in the fridge for storage (1-4 months) Our scions are harvested from the trees in July each year & then posted to customers Late July / August.
Orders for scions are able to be placed at any time throughout the year.
All scion varieties are sold subject to availability.
ORCHARD LABEL Long lasting Orchard Labels with fruit type & variety name - similar to those seen in Botanical Gardens. May be either tied to a side branch with wire or chain, attached to a timber stake beside the tree with a screw or attached directly onto the tree using a galvanised long screw & spring to allow space for growth.

i order three scions of heritage quinces...smyrna, van dieman and de borgeaut...with a view to striking them as cuttings rather than grafts. they arrived with great information and easy-to-follow instructions on how to give them their best chance of survival. at the moment they're still sitting in small propagating pots with soft drink bottle mini glass houses controlling their environment...all three have come to life and i'll be checking for roots in the next few days. so far...so good
