Rootstock

ROOTSTOCKS: For those who choose to graft their own trees, the following rootstocks are available for spring shipments only.

Note: for a standard-size tree (a tree grown to its full potential), one can graft onto almost any rootstock and plant the tree with the graft about two inches beneath the soil. The tree will exceed the dwarfing capacity of the rootstock.
