How does one identify a tree Tony? I've tried the online sites which have pictures of the fruit, and fruit sliced various ways. And even bought books that have pictures of leaves. Even then, it seems somewhat guess-work based.

the only sure way is to find a tree and check the fruit and leaves. Mc Grath's Nursery is a long established propagator.

5 acres, Ferguson 35X and implements, Hanmay pto shredder, BMW Z3, Countax ride on mower, chooks, Dorper and Wiltshire sheep. Bosky wood burning central heating stove and radiators. Retro caravan. Growing our own food and preserving it. Small vineyard, crap wine. :)

Hello fellow gardeners!

I'm a relatively new gardener looking to do some grafts this year. I had a dwarf peach tree which broke off, and the full sized peach root-stock grew up. The problem is I never get to eat any fruit off it because they ripen extremely slowly and succumb to rot just before they do finally ripen.

I'm looking for scion wood from any disease resistant variety of stone fruit, preferably peach, to graft onto the limbs. Any suggestion or help?

Hi there CamK and welcome. My understanding is controlling brown rot in peaches is more about orchard hygiene and prevention rather than variety selection. Although in saying that "Blackboy" peaches are said to be resistant. They grow well from seed if you can source some.

Have sent you a message YakDr. I was wondering if Black Mulberry can be grown from cuttings? And if anyone on here would be willing to send me a couple a piece's to try out? Happy to of course cover postage + a small fee :)
