Missouri Forestry Seedlings

The pawpaw seedlings were sold out before 9.00 am eastern time.

Anyone needing other varieties probably need to hurry.

Good luck to all


Wow, that was quick. Anyone wanting pawpaws should still order them, since I know last year they wound up being available again later - possibly someone orders some and then doesn’t pay the invoice in the required 30-days.

I forgot to mention that option when I posted.

I saw a couple of years ago that they sometimes have a large number for reallocation. I put in an order for 300 persimmon several days after the site showed them sold out. Not only did they cover the reallocation orders, they also reopened the site for more orders after shipping started.

If anyone needs any, it can’t hurt to try.

The downside is that it is usually pretty late before you find out if you are going to get a reallocation.

Jonlan, I knife graft about 30 heirlooms a year with an average succes rate of 97%. I sell some, gift or barter. No boasting here, but want to tell you some of what I do in hopes something will help. Root stock comes from Willamette Valley,Wa. and arrives in damp media. Put root stocks in non-chlorinated waterfor 5-7days max so water is readily available for the scion when you attatch it. Make sure the roots don’t dry while you’re grafting. Looking at the graft union from front to back and side to side,make sure your “plumbing” ( green cambium layer) is not showing no more than 80%. I like taping with “Parafilm” as it will bust off as the union grows and doesn’tact as a tourniquet for water flow. Mix peat moss,holds moisture,Composted manure + wood ashes & charcoal (nutrients),pine bark,old straw,compost. All this should be about 75% of what goes in the hole, plus25% of native soil mixed well. Make sure this dirt mix is between 5.2 and 5.8 ph. Also, if you aren’t familiar with Fire Blight and it’s prevention. A challenge? Search for somebody’s dying Heirloom apple tree and graft them a new one.

Does anyone know whether their persimmon seedlings are 90 chromosome stock?
