Yes, Raintree. Great prices, 5 for $18.
Thanks.

Robert, just got my quince bareroot order online. I will experiment with loquat grafted on these so I can have some dwf trees of my favorite ones. Thanks for the suggestion on quince.




Hi
That Raintree deal looks like a great option - and for anybody that gets shut out there, One Green World offers the same pricing right now. My question for you - and/or Robert - fruiting vs. flowering Quince - would it matter for our purposes here? I ask because I have a few thicker scions that might be a better match to, say, a 5g potted specimen, and it seems that many local nurseries stay regularly stocked with the ornamental cultivars - but less so for the fruiting.

Thanks for any input.

Cheers, Chris

I would think that it should work grafting onto flowering quince but the only time I have tried it was years ago I grafted a fruiting variety from Edgar Valdeva onto a flowering quince and it stayed alive for about 3-years then died. I would say if you could get them cheap enough it might be worth a try.

Hmm - any theories about the failure of that one? Did it ever produce for you at all, or was it still too small for that?

No it never got old enough to fruit! So I don't know if it was incapability with rootstock or what?
