I grow Autumn Olives, and it's the time of the year to take cuttings for grafting. I have had success grafting these using a cleft graft to some generic rootstocks.

I grow Charlie's Golden, Delightful, Jazzbo, and Brilliant Rose. Next year I should have cuttings of Jewell available as well. These varieties were previously available from a nursery that is no longer stocking them, and to the best of my knowledge, are not available for purchase anywhere!

I'm asking $5 per scion.

If you have any questions about the plants themselves or the grafting process feel free to let me know.

Yeah, they can be pretty invasive in some areas. Here in the pacific northwest the seeds don't germinate well, so they aren't really a problem. A local nursery grew them for 25 years and had only 3 volunteers in their fields of autumn olives - not bad.

That is a good point though, people should double check that before they purchase these, thanks for bringing that up.

Jon - I'm glad to see that Hector Black's autumn olives are still being offered even though Hidden Springs Nursery can no longer sell them. I don't believe they are protected varieties, but did you happen to check with the Hidden Springs folks regarding permission to sell them?

Also, while they don't have the whole set, Rolling River Nursery offers some of HB's varieties:

Kay,

Good point, I will double check with Hidden Springs prior to any sales. There wasn't any indication on their website that these were protected varieties, but I'll check as a courtesy.

I'm glad that Rolling River Nursery is offering some of the varieties. I was quite saddened when they dropped out of the marketplace for a while.

Thanks,

Jon

I'm located around Seattle, WA. I can mail things with fixed-rate boxes, and they arrive in just a couple days if need be.

Thanks,

Jon
