Hello Mark and All,
I love your book, it is one of my favorite 'permaculture' books to date!
Question about the stun method of 'sheer and total utter neglect'. When establishing, say 5000 apples, do you grow 5000 seeds from multiple varieties in a nursery bed, in the field, or elsewhere? If so, how do you prepair the beds for seeds?
If you are planting seedlings by the thousands, do you have suggested nurseries that you purchase from (other than Forest Ag
)? Gather from zone 5 wilderness? How do you go about gathering that volume of plants affoardably?
What about gaining access to large quantities of seeds, any suggestions on how to get 10,000 cherry seeds of various varieties? Etc.
Equally, how do you gain access to large quantities of scion wood?
Thanks for any suggestions!
