Vintage cider apple scion wood available

I was posting this for AmandaK but thought some interested parties might miss it on that thread.

Jump in head first and graft your own trees. Must order by December 31. And it's BYOR (Bring your own rootstock).

That is just awesome.  I may have to try to find some rootstock.  And a place to plant them, things are getting tight.

You guys are such enablers! I wonder when my fiancé is going to get tired of the phrase "so I was reading on the AHA Forum..." ;)

Good sources here as well, and in both cases you can order through February or March:

Very cool, thanks for posting.  Really amazing the variety of heritage apples available.
I am waiting on my Jonathans to start producing. BYOR gave me a chuckle. ;)
