Some good news from Ian Roger of R.V.Roger. I've rattled on before about the joys of Perry Pears
, and I'm delighted to hear that Ian is starting to grow selected varieties, regardless of whether or not we can extricate any trees from the defunct Scotts of Merriott. He is beginning with Black Worcester, Gin, Green Horse and Sweet Huffcap, grown on Pyrus communis rootstock. If you would like to reserve any maiden trees for delivery from November 2010 please let me know. Woot woot.
