      This place looks like the best for Quercus....
       
       
      ...they have Quercus virginiana, Quercus stellata and Quercus wislizenii (look these up in the PFAF database) and various others....Quercus alba they also have but at a much inflated price compared to Shumacher's (www.treeshrubseed.com) , and I can't check Sheffield's because the website is down for maintainance. (At Exhibition Seeds you have to email for possibility)
       
      ...it's not that I want to put unusual fruit and nut nurseries out of business!...I just want to see the birds and other wild animals have enough gorging foods....they have the grfated cultivars to specialise in anyway...now when am I going to get a few fields to plant up with these?....oh by the way of you want nut trees cultivars send a s.a.e. to:

                The buds are opposite- so it must be a sycamore. The tree book I have been using describes London Planes as one of the easiest tree to identify from their bark as it is like no other! I think I am going to get a better book- any recommendations? I looked at a copy of a friend's (quite old) botanical identifying based tree book- which I found took longer to work out than the pretty pictures in my current book- however going through a step by step, worded, identification is probably more useful for confirmation- Is there the best of both worlds out there???
