The PM system and emails seem to be broken again. Maybe it's better to communicate through emails directly.

Messages from known members seem to make it fine.  Either the new members are spam bots or they are somehow screwing something up ?

I'm wondering if maybe the CleanTalk addon is blocking PMs from users on an IP blacklist.
If anyone who can't seem to send PMs wants to post their IP address (click this to find it https://www.google.com/search?q=whats+my+ip), I'll check it against public blacklists.

I didnt see a message from you, if anyone doesnt get a respinse from me on the forum you can email to brad@paragontropicals.com

I have for sale what is listed in this thread.

Holiday, grows somewhat slow, not terribly so.  It has tight internode spacing and stays compact. I dont have a queen tree.  Nabal and reed are better trees than holiday for me personally.  I think all 3 are related with Nabal being the original type brought from guatemala in the early 1900s.

Thanks for the scions, Brad! They arrived in great shape. Got my trees grafted up today. Unfortunately, it was freezing cold today and the parafilm didn't want to stick to itself. Anyway, I have a feeling that most of them will take. Thanks again!

Give the buddy tape a try, its a lot softer than parafilm.  I wrap my scion in buddy tape, then just wrap the graft unions with just flagging tape because it pulls tight and comes off easy.

I think I have got everyone who contacted me invoices.  If not, send me another message.  I have been busy with this and other stuff the last week so I appologize if anyone didnt get a response who should have.

4 different guys named Juan contacted me for scions.  I think I got all the Juans covered.  If any of you guys named Juan didnt get everything sorted, please email again I will get you straightened out.

Thanks!

Thanks, will look into getting some. I noticed that the quality of parafilm varies on temperature - when its warm it is easy to stretch, vs when it's cold. Probably occurs because it is wax based.

Thank you Brad! Excellent scions, arrived quickly (Wednesday) and in great condition.
You must know something about my grafting success rate. :-\  Very happy with the transaction and looking forward to sharing the results.

I dont know whats going on in Texas but the packages are taking 5,6,7 days for a 2-3 day priority service.

Just a PSA, shipments are not going well to TX.

Mishandling of the packages does happen.  I am sure customers in Texas would understand.  Thank you for being a valuable member to the community.

Scions received today, thanks Brad! The avocado scions I got from you last year ago are growing out nicely.

Hello I am new to the site and new to grafting. I am trying to graft multiple varieties of avacado to my 4 year old tree
