Hello all, I'm from the UK and I have managed to grow an avocado from seed. It is 9 years old and yet to fruit. I was hoping that one of you may be able to help me out with a few avocado scions so I can graft onto this tree and try to make it fruit. Any varieties ideally hass. Thank you!

I think it will be hard to get fresh scions into the UK from another continent.

They are in Europe though, maybe that's easyier for you?

Hi JohnnyCarlos,

I can give you a Pinkerton Scion but now it's not the right time to graft. How big is your seedling? You need to contact me in Oct. Cheers

I tried some grafting, and found out, even the wounds healed, the scionwoods still died... More like some bacteria

Hi Marmot1,

I am not sure about bacteria but avocado grafting is a bit tricky. You need the following criterias to be successful:
1. good quality scion
2. timing
3. suitable/compatible root stock/seedling
4. skill
Cheers.

Hi David01,
I guess they are due to weak scionwoods/bacteria/knife with alcohol remains, I always use plastic zipper bags to keep moisture, I didnot use new bags but the old ones, some of them might have some history of dead scionwoods.
Too sad about one scionwood, almost successful, it's a hass type, the tree is so fruitful. I got the scionwood from a tiny twig, so it was very tiny.
It's weird, I tried so many times on that tree, and never succeeded. Next time I would use new/huge avocado seeds to get the grafting job done. I feel there's some kind of incompatibility between the tree and rootstocks.

Hi Marmot1,

I have no problem with Lamb Hass rootstock but someone suggested to use Reed root stock if compatibility is an issue. Cheers.

Hi mate can I please buy or swap your avocado scions? I would love a Pinkerton scion. Can’t find any in Australia so far. Only trees and I don’t the room or the money. I’m very sick with severe health issues and have spent a fortune already on my fruit trees and garden etc. I am happy to do swaps with anyone who has avocado trees. I have a bacon avo tree, still quite small but I’m happy to graft one onto a seedling for anyone who has some other varieties of avo scions.

David can I please buy or swap some lamb hass and Pinkerton scions from you? I want to make my grafted avocado trees with several varieties on the one since I don’t have the room for all the varieties I want. I am hoping to find someone who has fuerte, wurtz, lamb hass etc scions and of course any avocado scion would be amazing. I have many fruit trees and plants I am happy to help with sending some cuttings too. Please text me if you can please help me with some scions or know someone who can help me out.

Did you find some avo scion wood mate? I have bacon but it’s still too young to use but I’m happy to swap some scions next year off of it. I have plenty of other good fruit grafted trees I can swap for some avo scions too. My rootstock seedlings are still quite small so even if I wait until next year for some scions that would be ok. But I really want at least a couple this spring to get started on my ago tree so I can graft Onto my bacon n have a 3 in 1 tree. I also want to try and propagate some cuttings too. I have already done it at home with my bacon tree when the windy storm knocked it over a branch broke off and I have saved it and hoping it takes root. It is still alive and showing signs of rooting. So that will be a pure clone of bacon avo tree which is what I want so the root can handle the cooler temp as well. What I don’t like is when ya buy an a I tree that’s cold hardy but the rootstock isn’t, a lot of ppl in vic etc have had this issue where the rootstock isn’t right for colder weather even if it’s a bacon etc.

Hi David01, I've been looking high and low for scions - if you've got some to part with, I'll buy 'em!

I have a 4 y.o tree grown from Hass seed and a 3 y.o tree grown from Reed.

Oh ok no worries. What time frame next year mate? I have bought a feurte and bacon. I live in Ballarat so I know this is a huge risk. I have bought a greenhouse though so I can grow Pinkerton and lamb hass etc in pots in the greenhouse. I also want to try and grow any other dwarf types like wurtz etc in pots.
Thanks again, I prob will end up buying them by then but if I don’t i would love to swap some scions or buy them.

Thank you so much. How much would you sell scions for? I live in Ballarat. I will gladly swap some. My number is 0402276347 if you could please text me when you have some scions available I would appreciate that so much. I have severe health issues so I would rather graft my own trees than keep buying more and more. I have spent too much already on my garden as I can see you have too. I would love to get some reed And hass scions too. What time next year do you think is ok? I know you said October before for Pinkerton scions.Can I please get some Pinkerton this month? I must take some photos and add my fruit tree list on my edibles too soon as I have time. I am going to buy some rare types in Australia in the near future ones that can handle the cold. USA has some awesome types I haven’t seen here. They are very expensive to buy though but I can buy them from this place called plantogram I think it is. I have to look into it first though. But I would gladly return the favour with any scions in the future. Much appreciated Dave. Thank you very much 🙏

Hi all,
I have a Mexican Creollo avocado tree that I am thinking about pruning and then grafting on a Hass scion which will leave me with quite a few scions of budwood.

Does anybody in Melbourne have Hass avocado scion wood they would like to trade?

The Creollo variety is a hardy tree often used for rootstocks in Mexico. It produces egg sized avocados that are edible skin and all and have a rich flavour. The seed is from Oaxaca in Mexico.

Are you keeping any of the Creollo for yourself or turning it into a rootstock ??

I once grafted rootstocks from a tall seedling in a pot.
Used the whole 1 metre cutting, cut into 2 or 3 bud sections.
All took fine, used parafilm to wrap scion and graft.

Hi Avo L134, have sent you an email.

I'd be happy to share scion wood wit with you. I recently grafted on some scions that user John Shu shared with me, but I'm not confident they will take so would be good to have another source if these fail. Check your email and let me know your thoughts,

Jackfruit, I am absolutely keeping some of the tree to hopefully produce, there is no way I'll find that variety here in Aus and it's a really good avo. The size of a chicken egg, black, entirely edible (skin and all), thin but very rich, bright green creamy flesh.

The tree has forked which is why I am looking to graft one half with different varieties.

Hello all, Spring is coming and I'll likely be pruning my avocado of a couple of smaller branches. Is anyone interested in trying to graft some of these cuttings? As mentioned above its a Mexican Creollo variety and probably the only one of its kind in Oz so happy to share and propagate it if possible! Let me know if you are interested.
