ROOTSTOCKS

(Plant heights are given at maturity)

Grafting is a time-honored method of propagation that involves inserting a piece of one plant into another in such a way that the two parts become one and a new tree or plant is created.  Grafting can also be used to repair and to strengthen injured or weak trees, to introduce male or female flowers onto a plant, or to create plants that consist of several different varieties.
    For a graft to succeed, most often, one can only use plants that are botanically related, but sometimes it is possible (and preferable) to introduce a plant of one genera to another, such as in the case of pears on quince rootstock.  Several different methods are used and are not as complicated as one might think.
    Our rootstocks are either certified virus indexed (CVI) or VT virus tested (except for apple and pear seedling rootstocks, which are considered inherently free of seed transmitted dieases), and are chosen for their strength and vitality.  Minimum quantity order for rootstocks is 100 per variety and must be purchased in multiples listed.
