2017 Scion wood list

Please get your orders in as soon as possible, we will be posting them out in mid September (16th, 17th September)

Some varieties are limited to 1 per person as there are limited amounts of scions, and it means we can share the varieties around.  Next year you can multiply them out yourself. Please give a couple of extra choices just in case we haven’t got enough to go round. Others are abundant and you can order up to five scions of one variety. Each 15 cm scon would make at least 2 new trees and sometimes three if the buds are close together. The cost of each scion is $3 and we will confirm postage when you order.

Please send your order to: openorchard@sces.org.nz

Fruit Tree list

We have an annual fruit tree sale each year - usually the first weekend of August. These bare rooted trees are for sale for the Southland area only and must be picked up from Riverton. 

We do accept pre-orders for trees once the list has been confirmed and released.  Our members have the first option of pre-orders and then the orders are open to the public.  The 2017 Fruit tree sale has finished but we do have 19 trees remaining for sale at the centre.

Contact us if you want to be added to the database to receive the fruit tree list every year (The list is usually available to our members in May for pre-orders and the public in June).
