      Hi Keith, I’ve had a very productive spring grafting (I took your class last year)…. and to hoping to get lots of new apple trees from it. I’m interested in getting some of the things you have listed. Just a question – I’ve seen that you need a male and female for the Sea Berry – and this doesn’t say you do – I searched for it – and don’t see anything listed for this kind — are these sexed? are they self pollinating? Thanks

    Hey Craig-

    Good to hear from you and glad to know the grafting workshop is paying off!! The ‘Botanica’ is a female cultivar and can be pollinated by any male sea berry. Yes- they are dioecious, and do require a mate. I may have some males available in a few weeks.

    Thanks!
