Rootstock and grafting question.
« on: March 31, 2022, 07:49:11 PM »
I ordered some stone fruit rootstocks and scions from separate sources. The scions look great. The rootstocks are healthy but are much smaller than I expected as in between 1/8 and 1/4 diameter. Most of the scions are thicker than that. Do most people grow these rootstocks out before grafting them? I can do that and use the scions on my current in ground trees. Actually have enough material to try grafting to the rootstocks and my tree. What have your experiences been? The scions are apricot and plum.

I graft on big tree to save scions then deal with rootstock later.

That is good to hear because that is what I did. Will let the rootstocks grow for probable bidding late summer.
