One of the great places for anyone growing Orchards is to join an Orchard club and it allows you to do a number of things. First of all when you are very successful with the plant it allows you to bring it to the club or in many cases the club will have a show and it can be exhibited and compared by judges as to how you could grow it. This particular one was just exhibited at the mass. Orchard Society in Boylston, Mass. and came home with a blue ribbon. Now, I wish all my plants got blue ribbons but that's not so. What else does an Orchard Club do for you? Well, I got this at an Orchard Club sale where one of the members had divided his plant and was willing to share it will his fellow members of the club. Finally that's where it came into my possession. Other things you can get from an orchard Club is you can sit down with the people that grow these things and say, "What do I need to do?"
