A note about Fang’s Scion Exchange App

You have to enter either Wants or Offers into the app to get the Exchange page to generate.   And don’t forget to click Update at the bottom of the page after entering your Wants and/or Offers.

Thank you to the members who have already done so.  The rest of you, get pruning!  With this crazy January weather, my apples are already leafing out…

  1. WANTS: I need the following that would do well in Culver Ciity microclimate:
    White fig
    Mango
    Loquat
    Apple
    I can come masked to pick any/all up from your place.
    Btw – I just renewed both my WLA & National memberships, and am unsure what the App is, so please get back to me with guidance re how to put in my request as I could not find an app on this website. Thanks! Suzanne @ Greener Way

    1. Sorry, Suzanne, our site was keeping all the comments hidden until today (Independence Day for Comments). Anyhow, we ended up not really using the app this past scion exchange and went for the traditional real live one. FYI, we do not sell trees except at our annual plant sale in December. The scion exchange is for pieces of scion wood folks graft onto trees or rootstock they already have.

  2. Is Fang’s available for a desktop computer? I don’t see any links anywhere for it in any form. I remember it from a year or two ago, but how to use it now???

    1. Sorry, John, just getting around to answering all the comments on the site (which just magically appeared today). Yes, Fang’s app worked on a desktop and that was the only place I used it. But this past year we actually had a real life scion exchange and COVID being willing, we will do the same next year!

  3. Hi,
    New member – looking to understand your schedule and time for monthly meetups at the Veterans Memorial building, lock into my calendar any field trips, and definitely get the dates for the upcoming winter Scion Exchange – any word? Looking forward to meeting you all and exchanging plants and lessons of the trade.

    1. Mark, in general we meet the second Saturday of each month between 10 and 12. With COVID, of course, most of our meetings these past several years have been Zoom or Zoom hybrids Today there is an actual field trip up to Angeles Crest Creamery but there will be no Zoom because of the lack of cell reception. As a member, you will be receiving a newsletter once a month with all this info. If you don’t get yours, please let us know. (Since you just joined, you probably didn’t receive November’s but you can always see upcoming events on the site.)

      On December 10th, per the banner now flying at the top of our site, our big annual plant sale and Holiday Party. This will be in our regular meeting location in the MultiPurpose Room at the Veterans Memorial Building at Culver and Overland though at a slightly later time to make lunch more likely. January will be a field trip and February will be our annual Scion Exchange and (hopefully) grafting demos also (hopefully) in the MultiPurpose Room. We can’t reserve rooms for 2023 yet.

      1. Wai Long Chow is selling a Kona Sharwil Avocado Grafted tree and I’d love to buy it.
        Can I pay him through this site somehow and pick it up on Dec 10 (or earlier)?

        My email is preyformary@gmail.com
        “Contact Us” page was not working.

        Thanks, Mary

        1. Our plants will only be available on December 10th at the plant sale. If there are any remaining, I will take at least some of them home and sell them to those who couldn’t attend. All plants have been donated to the chapter by members to help defray the costs of room rental and insurance. BTW, Wai Ling is a woman and a great propagator. She is actually substituting a larger Kona Sharwil for the one she originally intended to contribute so the price has increased slightly.
