Would you believe it!!

This very healthy looking scion is a vigorous cooking apple Lord Combermere.

The rootstock is the pear rootstock ‘Pyrodwarf’!?!

I didn’t think anything would happen here a)for the obvious reason of it being apple grafted onto pear and b) because I cut the scion off the tree as it was breaking bud on 20th March and grafted it immediately.

It will be interesting too see how long this tree lives for!

A grand day out!

It was a good day. Not only meeting Princess Anne but all the other scolars who had recieved awards. A few of us came away with potentially some very interesting work lined up.
