Post Looking for Golden Hornet source
Is anyone aware of a source for Golden Hornet trees or scionwood?

Guess I should add that this is an applecrab or crabapple. Malus anyway :D


I see lots of sources in the UK, but can't find any here.

I don't know a source of Golden Hornet, but Green Mantle Nursery specializes in Crab apples and has some varieties that sound really attractive.

If you end up not finding your Golden Hornet, take a look at what they have to offer. You might be able to find something else that will make you happy.

Thanks for the idea. I ordered some benchgrafts from Green Mantle last year and didn't have any luck with them. Not sure what the issue was, but I'm hesitant to order from them again. I"m thinking that their spring and mine is so different the trees just couldn't adapt?

Did you try Nick Bottner in Yoncalla, OR? He has huge numbers of scions. MOre than anyone in the US, I think.
