      Dear Rain,
      Yes, it is possible to ship plants to the United States, though you would have to contact your local Government Department of Agriculture to see if Crataegus can be imported. If so, then you would also need to obtain a phytosanitary certificate from the nursery sending you the plants, to ensure that they were free of any pests or diseases. If you do take this route, then I could send you details of nurseries in Britain that supply the plant.
      Alternatively, you could try importing the seed. This is likely to be a lot easier and cheaper than plants, though it will take considerably longer to produce fruiting trees. If you would like to try the seed route, then we could send some seed from our tree at PFAF in Cornwall. It is a very good fruiter with heavy yields most years and excellent quality fruit.
      Please let us know by late August if you want seed.
      Ken Fern

      Does anyone know if it is possible to have Crataegus schraderiana shipped to the US?  I would really like to introduce this species to the US West Coast food foresters.
