Best rootstock for phoenix
« on: January 13, 2021, 01:05:19 AM »
I have been thinking of grafting different citrus varieties.  Have gotten some seeds and plan on mulitigrafting.
Question, does anyone know what is the best dwarfing rootstock for Phoenix,  AZ?  Obviously we have drought, but anything I plant will be watered.  We have very tough clay, alkaline soil.
