  • Harvey's clearance sale on cuttings?

    Harvey's clearance sale on cuttings started today. There are quite nice varieties still left. I bought all the UC Davis Black Ischia cuttings that he posted. Extremely cheap and the remaining cuttings will sell out probably by today. Just FYI..

        Cutting sales have ended for the season. Plant sales will start March 1 at 8 eastern time. If it is still too cold in your area I can hold your plants till a date of your choosing.

                Some earlier ones were grated onto Panache (what I had readily available) but these were grafted onto some Brown Turkey I bought from Dave Wilson.

                Correction: Dave Wilson calls it Improved Brown Turkey. I just improved them a lot more.

                This was on the April Fools thread.
                Has anyone ever ordered from greenfig,you can't beat the prices. Even if you have to wait a year.

                This is his first year delivering plants. He did have a cutting sale which seemed to have gone well.

                He is a commercial farmer and seems to have gained a fair amount of trust.

                Some potential issues are that he hasn't verified that the varieties are true (going off of faith using trusted sellers) and he might not be able to fulfill the orders if the propagation doesn't go as well as expected. He is growing new plants from cuttings and then propagating several generations of those.

                There should be a lot more reviews after his first round of plants this summer.

                  Don, just to be clear, you're speaking about James/Greenfin, correct? Since this post isn't made as a reply to a specific post I would like to make that point clear.

                  Yes, Greenfin. Both seem to be great guys but Greenfin has big sale.

                Can we cuss on these threads? Because I've got some choice words.

                No but really, I got some cuttings from Harvey - very happy with them. Thanks, Harvey.
