Hi all I am interested in obtaining a chokecherry tree or seeds...if you should happen to have either please contact me to work a trade.
Hi Signet ... long time since we exchanged see hon. I've been away from GW for a few years.
The Chokecherry are just in bloom now (N.S.), but if you wait patiently, I'll get you fresh seed as soon as the trees bare fruit.
(formerly of Dartmouth, N.S.)
I can get you seeds to if ya like.
Hi Faye ,
Long time no hear from ! Hope all is well with you . Thanks for the offer ......I dont mind waiting . What would you like in trade?
I wouldnt mind getting some seeds from a couple of places ....so sure we could trade . Are you looking for anything in particular?
Let me know
At this time, I don't know off hand Signet...but I am sure something will tickle my fancy LOL
As soon as I see the berries form, I'll clean some seeds and get back to you.
Actually Faye , you need to wait till the fruit ripens in order for the seed to be mature enough to sprout . So not at beginning of berries but closer to finish of berries.
If you are still looking for chokecherry seeds/seedlings, I can save you a few seedlings and bring them to the RBG sale next May. Do you think you will be able to make it next year for a plant swap? I have been pulling out seedlings from my garden the last couple of weeks.
Hi Ontnative ,
Seedlings sound good to me if you have them please. Seeds would be my second choice simply because I havent been able to find any info on how to start them ( I know the shell is very hard !!!!!!!!!! Looking forward to my second RBG sale next spring and visiting with you again and trading LOL !
I know the seeds need cold stratification. I have some if you still need them.
Signet, I have a chokecherry shrub waiting for you whenever we next trade plants. Bought at the Guelph Arboretum sale for $3. It's about 18-24" high. They had some pots labelled Trillium luteum, but were too expensive, and I was suspicious they might be dead rather than just dormant. I purchased mine when they were growing in the spring, which is what I would advise.
