Four winds nursery - Owari Satsuma
« on: July 12, 2019, 11:51:50 PM »
After a long week of waiting, my Satsuma trees are finally here.  Here are pictures of of them including the high in case someone hadn't ordered from four season before.  They are the entry-level.  All the trees look healthy and good condition.  I am happy with them.  I will repot them in a 5 gal pot tomorrow morning.

Added:
They are whip graft.

Thanks Will2358 for the correction.

Is the rootstock labeled?  If so, what did they use for the rootstock.

Very nice looking trees, especially for entry level class trees.  The nursery seems to certainly know how to grow trees.

I didn't see any label for the rootstock, but I saw a thorn in the rootstock.  My guess it is a Trifoliata.

Chances are since they only sell dwarf trees it is FD. A slow but quality rootstock.

I know they used to only use cuban shaddock and called it "dwarf."  I heard rumors that they were or have switched to C-35.  Cuban shaddock is not cold tolerant enough for my area.

I was recently at their open house and they stated majority of their rootstock is C35.
