Do you sell any already grafted scions, or the scions/budwood only?

If you want to wait a few weeks, I can prepare airlayers of Inga feuillei and Inga edulis.

I would also be interested in this.

Appreciate the detective work greenmad62! Hopefully they'll eventually provide you with the correct info.

I would presume that if its not mature enough to flower, they wouldn't know.

The cool thing about these is that they propagate very easily from cuttings. If someone somewhere out there has a known female plant, hopefully they'll show up here and be willing to share.

Failing that I'll be happy to once I'm able to acquire one.

From what I've read, they are male and female, but the female will produce fruit with or without pollination. Pollinated fruit will have seeds, whereas unpollinated will not.

AKA Aristotelia chilensis. Would like to give this one a go.

Are these pick up only or can you ship?

Interested if you still have some left!

Arbutus unedo? That's really common here but usually bland. I don't know when the fruiting season is to collect seeds.

I've read its fairly bland, but looking more to it for ornamental purposes. I was offered some seeds from another member that are supposedly the best tasting of the bunch he has available, so we'll see. :)

I have B argentia and it is flowering now. I had fruit all last year and should be getting it
soon as it has finally warmed up.

Awesome. Thanks!

AKA Bunchosia Armeniaca/Argentinia/glandulifera for the Peanut Butter tree.

Looking to do another big grow of these and to spread them amongst the members of my local gardening group.

Big bonus if they're still in fresh pods, but the seeds alone will be fine too.

I did, but the cost of the plant and shipping is prohibitively expensive for me at this time through them. Since these are supposedly really easy to propagate with cuttings, I figured I'd go the route of giving some money to a person willing to provide me with some instead. :)

Looks nice Greenman62! A type like that is right what I'm looking for. Let me know your price for a corm with roots (ideal) or culms with multiple nodes.

And correct, they do grow from nodes, not too dissimilar to sugar cane. I have some black bamboo I got some from a friend locally that's growing from some, albiet slowly since desert + winter = super slow bamboo growth.

If anyone has Buddah Belly, I'm still looking and eager to nab some.

Depends on the variety, and I'll have irrigation/containment for it.

If anything, bamboo can be very desirable here as it will grow well, but smaller and run less due to our climate. There's a good number of folks here that have some in their yards, or indoors. Sugar cane is less prominent, but I know some folks here that are growing it with ease.

I'm looking for either rootable, or pre-rooted cuttings for bamboo, specifically any variety that's fast growing, adaptable to a desert climate, and with edible shoots.

Also looking for BAMBUSA VULGARIS “WAMIN”, aka the Dwarf Buddah belly, or any other unique and fast growing ornamental.

Looks to be fairly in line with a standard florida avocado. Low oil, more watery, larger size.

Ive got several reed seedlings going.  They need a lot of heat to get started.  They do take 6 to 8 weeks to pop up.  Reed trees also seem to take super hot dry conditions no problem.

Most of the trees available in san diego nurseries are on polinator rootstock.  Mostly zutano or bacon seeds are used for rootstocks here.

That's very good to know. If there's one thing Vegas never has a shortage of, its super hot and dry conditions.

Growing one now. Too immature for fruit yet, but I'll be happy to share seeds once it does.

Shipped with some wet paper towels in a ziploc bag, they should do fine and will likely germinate by the time I get them.

Thanks! I'll look forward to hearing from you again on those.

Yup! PM'd.

This is a really interesting method. I'm going ot have to give it a try.

I have a part of my yard with some amended soil and almost full shade. Seedlings typically adjust better to Vegas conditions I've found, at least in terms of mangos that I've played with, so this will be a fun experiment to try.

I'm curious, which rootstock should I grow from seed would have the best soil salt tolerance?
