      I mentioned Glam Rock Hydrangea in the summer. I too would be interested to see if anybody has one to show.

        Hi @thriftybri . Please forgive me for intruding on your thread. It’s very unlikely that I will ever be able to answer any of your questions as my gardening experience to date consists of taking plants out of pots and putting them back into slightly bigger pots. I do find though that asking questions, how ever daft, often promotes interesting discussions. You never know, one of these days I might even get a question I actually know the answer too.

          I can help with the redcurrant cuttings.

          In return, I would like some desert eating apple scions or desert cherry scions for a grafting workshop that we're hoping to run in mid March to April.

            Grapes are usually grafted for good reason. The rootstock provides the right growth rate and vigour. I suggest you buy a grafted vine of your choosen variety for maximum chance of success with grape growing.

                          The title of your thread had me worried, as well, as I haven't seen that word alongside my photo for a long time!
