Helene, you might contact David M. Hunter, the Agriculture Canada scientist who announced the naming of HW614; he should know of any Canadian nurseries that are propagating it (see story at http://www.stcatharinesstandard.ca/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=910304 <http://www.stcatharinesstandard.ca/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=910304>  ).  Hunter is an adjunct professor at the University of Guelph.  Email: dhunter at uoguelph.ca <mailto:dhunter at uoguelph.ca>   or hunterda at agr.gc.ca <mailto:hunterda at agr.gc.ca>  . -- Sam
