Bill Shaw. Sean McCann raised the question of the deterioration of 'Admiral Rodney'. The theory he quoted was that it had been over-propagated. it could be that - it was a small nursery that produced it. But might it not be that it was due to an inadequate longevity gene? A fault like this wouldn't show up in four or five years of testing but might take fifteen years or more to become evident....

One theory of deterioration is that the constant stripping down of bushes to provide propagation material has resulted in the weakening of the plant. This was said to be the reason for many of the 'Admiral Rodney' bushes being so weak so soon after its introduction. It was felt that the material used to propagate the later bushes were constantly being ravished for the production of budwood. Better bushes could have been produced with budwood taken from bushes selected for vigour and health.
