Seeds of named Hungarian varieties selected for nectar and timber production, and tree form R. neomexicana which is being threatened by the SW drought and needs to move north. This is a tree form type, super drought tolerant by NW standards and likely to enjoy the Columbia Gorge in a couple decades, hardy here now. just send an address to rick valley at gmail etc. and I'll send them to you. When you have plants available I can certainly buy bundles- I'm a landscape contractor in OR. Saw ya in SE Portland at the potluck!

My sister planted 4 seedlings and one came true. The other three produce huge crops but they are astringent like a persimmon until over ripe or dried. The secle pear has a wonderful cinnamon fragrance when dried. Depending on how my taxes com out I have been craving a pawpaw for a long time.

Greetings from the Netherlands,

I live just north of you perhaps 35 minutes.
I've been living on our new place for 8 busy years now and have planted a dozen or more items each year and would share cuttings of any of what I have.
This includes heritage apple/pear/peach/plum trees, black currents, several types of strawberries, comfrey, herbs, and a bunch of other plants.
If you are interested I am also collecting names of folks that would like to do a meet up when it dries up a bit. Perhaps a seed/plant swap? Those are always fun.
Send me a purple moosage if you would find that helpful.
