12/06/19 - propagation updates - I think the Sorbus graft I did earlier in the year was a success 👍🏼 should make a handsome small tree one day with some awesome autumn colour #sorbus #sorbusjosephrock #propagation-sorbus #sorbus-propagation #graft #apicalwedgegraft #mountainash #rowan #propagation-grafting

Thanks Rach, now appreciating the need to have a couple of smaller trees in the garden so this will look great as it gets bigger 😁 @rachelbrooks

Oh definitely Barbara - best decision I ever made, and wish I’d done it sooner 😄 - just need to figure out where to go with it now, and what to do with all these new plants 😂 @jacaranda

15/03/19 - Project Update - cataloguing, this one is also an apical Wedge graft. Sorbus ‘Joseph Rock’ is a really nice form which has yellow berry clusters in the autumn amongst orange,red and purple autumn foliage 👌🏼. It’s grafted onto straight species Sorbus aucuparia (standard mountain ash) #graft #propagation-grafting #apicalwedgegraft #sorbus #sorbusjosephrock #mountainash #rowan
