Another statistitian in our midst!!!!
I'll decline the challenge to figure this out to such precision, however. If I
include seedlings, which require closer observation than named varieties, my
count is somewhere between 250 and 500 per annum. It's fun to look at numbers,
but reality is now some 3000 under observation each year.
