      hi Geir, Sorbus domestica seeds are available, the species is said to be hardy to USDA zone 6 (-23.5°C) so should be OK temperature-wise in any fruit growing

        hi Geir,

        Sorbus domestica seeds are available, the species is said to be hardy
        to USDA zone 6 (-23.5°C) so should be OK temperature-wise in any fruit
        growing region of Norway - there may be problems with excessive
        moisture if you are in a damp part, but soil improvement can help with
        that. As seeds are short lived, you will need to get them very soon
        for this season, or wait until Autumn.

        All the best,
        Matthew
