    Edward, no idea where you are located but you can find your closest chapter on our Chapters page. This month (and last) are when most grafting demos are scheduled for those chapters holding them during the Pandemic.

Dear Gardeners,
In two days we will be visiting San Diego, California from Europe. We want to visit one of your gardens. It is possible? If so, please send an address or telephone number, so we can contact with you when we are there. Thanks for answering.

What day is the scion exchange?

    Ronni Kern · February 2, 2022 at 9:10 pm

    That totally depends on which chapter you are talking about. Each chapter schedules its own exchange. Go the Chapters and locate the one closest to you.

Anyone know if any cultivars if pawpaw is easier to establish than others? I tried two seedlings in pots, planted on shady spot, kept them watered but both died. In Auburn, but a cool microclimate.

    Anyone know where I can find some Nikita cuttings or mammoth

    Jordan · January 25, 2023 at 10:51 am

    Michael King, Paw Paws are more finicky. Best time to graft is when that species buds are swelling in nature around where you live.

I’m wanting a scion cutting for grafting a avocado tree I have grown from seed. I live in Tennessee

    In all honesty, avos do better grafted with fresh wood. You would have more success finding someone near you with avos. Also check out http://www.scion-exchange.com/trade/

    Thanks, Joe. I’ll add it to the schedule.

Susan Gilmour · January 14, 2023 at 6:00 pm

Is the Santa Clara chapter exchange actually happening on 2/4/23? Can’t find any info on it, is it members only this year?
