QUOTE “So to give you guys a little more info. He starts by grafting shoots of whatever verity onto root-stock (deodar I think?) and then grows them in the ground for up to 10 years. After that, all the branches that are too fat (a lot of them) are cut off, and all the branches that are too long with only foliage at the ends (the rest of them) have new grafts put on the interior. After that, it’s just a simple matter of 5-10 more years of branch development. Or you can take the easy route and just buy one of his trees, if you have a few thousand dollars to burn… Until that day comes, I’ll be a futterin’ fool myself.”

Thanks again Adam. It’s good to see that you’re picking up the Norn Irun (Northern Ireland)  jargon
