Congratulations! I have to tell you that I looked up the Temperate Orchard Conservacy and am relieved to learn that you don’t have to give up drinking to buy from them.


#3

Mine arrived too. Henry Clay!


#4

They are a fantastic organization doing great work. Thank you for supporting them.


#5

These are some of the rarest Limbertwigs. Really happy to see that TOC was able to identify them in Botner’s collection. Very good news. Good luck growing them out.


#6

Glad you finally got your Henry Clay!


#7

Nice, I can’t even get anyone to get back to me from many sources.


#8

Has anyone ordered from Steve Kelly this year?

Hilarious! It took me a few secs.
I thought you were commenting on the possible lack of scripture verses on the webpage. Not a criticism, mind you. In fact, working with plants IS a spriritual experience. For me, anyway.

Pod,

I wonder if their e-mail is blocking your messages.

Perhaps if you snail mailed them…


#11

I’m attempting to. He missed my first request for a scion list, responded to my second, but so far hasn’t replied to my order request with shipping costs, etc. I’ll wait a few more days before re-sending it.


#12

I just sent another email asking if he was going to fill my order as he hadn’t got back to me with price as well. Hope his in good health.


#13

I did get a response from them once that showed my message was found in spam. I was getting worried, but everything has worked out so far, I got my order in the mail yesterday. give them some slack.


#14

I am sure he is very busy with that many varieties of apples. I am ordering 23 varieties from steve if he gets the time to fill my order. I went all or nothing with Steve, due to others deadlines. I was hoping for a reply so I could get from toc and others what he could not give so its either the limbertwig motherlode or bust, now.


#15

Steve Kelly can be slow but always came through for me, sometimes after a reminder or two. I’ve been buying scions from him for about ten years.


#16

How did everyone order scion from them?


#17

I think there deadline is 2day.


#18

Guess i better call…lol


#19

Seeing those scions really brings back memories … they are the same kinds of tags and writing that Botner used on his tags. I got most of my unusual apples from Botner, and its great to see the tradition continue.

I just wanted to say that I talked to Joanie Cooper on the phone yesterday…
