Transplanting and propigating the old fruit trees, trees, plants, and shrubs of my grandparents and my wifes grandparents homeplaces has been a really rewarding experience to say the least!

It sounds rewarding. I'd be happy to see some pictures if you have them.

My neighbors have beautiful front landscaping and their backyard is spectacular. Almost everything comes from propagating relatives' and friend's plants (eg genuine Cuban mojito mint from me). I always do extra seed starts for my organic veggie & herb garden, and my extras go to them.

My okra comes from drying out one of their okra pods and harvesting the seeds.

Very nice! Have done the same over the last 20 years. We have scotch pines from my wife's grandparents and other pines from the land I used to hunt, an oak from my dad's, an ash from my inlaws (we're trying to keep it alive) and forsythia from my inlaws.

I’d love to hear about this. I have an old apple tree I’d really like to transplant/ graft, but I’ve had no success thus far.
