      Hi King Amdo
       
      You sound like an interesting kind of guy.
       
      Anyway in response to your request for where you can get Kens plants.
       
      The Agroforestry Research Trust thats where.Its run almost singlehanded by a wonderful guy called Martin Crawford. He manages a 2 acre forest garden and a 10 acre nut orchard on the Dartington estate near Totnes. He has an extensive list of plants and seeds of nearly every specis suitable for agroferestry use and whats more its published on an interactive website where you can order direct. He has also published several booklets on the production and culture of various specis which give comprehensive information for the prospective grower.On top of all this he runs courses on forest garden design and nut production. By the way he has a wonderful selection of walnuts in his orchard which have started bearing copius quantities of nuts after only 4 years.  Yes he welcomes visitors by arrangement and has at least 2 dates per year where he provides a conducted tour of both his projects.
       
      By the way I live in Pembrokeshire  and have begun planting up a 4 acre site as a forest garden which you'll be pleased to know contains  4 walnut trees supplied by Martin.
       
      Here are the details of  ART:

      Totnes
      Devon

      01803840776
       
      There are other suppliers I would also reccomend but these are more specialised and do all have some really interesting and unusual plants suitable for agroforestry. I have used all of these and found the quality to be very good.However the best source for the most choice and quality is undoubtably the ART.
