Owner's comments

This is a 2009 graft taken from a neighbour's very old Norfolk Royal this spring. The other 3 grafts we did at the same time are now in Frodsham, Cheshire, St Andrews, Fife and Cobham, Surrey and all doing well. Got 4 more grafts from neighbour's tree in Feb 2012, which are all flourishing.
