[NAFEX] bud 9 spacing

Bud. 9 is a true dwarf or very similar to M9 in size. And it is near
impossible to say how big they'll get as it is relative to many non-genetic
influences. Your season is much shorter than mine and that reduces tree
size (less grow time each season) by 10-15% at least. We've had trees on
Bud 9 which are well over 10 years old and they are indeed similar to M9.
Here, here they'll attain a height of around 7-9' depending on variety. A
general recommended spacing is 8' each way in relatively fertile soils. If
soils are weak, reduce by one of two feet.
Hope this helps.
Ed, So. Indiana, still heaven like, inundated with odor of honeysuckle,
roses and lilac!!
