Not much to see just a cutting. They are not selling rooted plants now seems the owner wants to plant the trees/bushes at his house so these will get very scare for the next three/four years. 99.00 got the cutting .... now have to get it rooted.

You got us thinking around here about the grafting. Not real adept at it. But this might be one to try.
Mark, done a few in water but have really good results with putting them in dirt. Makaha Sun is a beauty.

I gave you and Stuart 5 acorns Robert because I think that is a great tutorial! I was successful 1 out of 10 on my graft, now I know why... I didn't do it as well as Stuart did *Blush*

@RobertB if you were to post that in a separate thread I'd make it sticky (and give you some acorns for your trouble....) nodding
