Michelle, my Harglow tree is still dormant and I could send you some
scionwood, if you like. Please let me know your mailing address and
about what size diameter scionwood you need. Will try to match that if
I also have access to scionwood of the Canadian apricot 'Debbie's Gold'.
Here's a description: 'Debbie's Gold Apricot': Successful in Winnipeg.
Good taste, eaten fresh or for canning. However, you may want to grow a
cultivar that has better quality since you live where such a hardy
apricot is not really needed.

Subject: [NAFEX] apricot scion
I was just out rooting around in the orchard and garden and find I have
3 apricot and three cherry rootstocks heeled in in pots that are still
alive from 2 years ago. They are in a neglected area, and the last I
had check it looked like the bunnies had found their way into my chicken
screen cages around them, so I had written off those rootstock. I am
delighted to find these 6 still viable but have not made any efforts
toward scion woods. Would anyone have some of the "Har" group that I
could graft for my apricots? That was the original reason I bought
these rootstocks a couple of years ago. The cherries I dream of hardy
sweets, maybe some of the yellows so the birds do not recognize?? I
call myself zone 4/5 here in SE Wis. I have only 1 sweet cherry
surviving; I think Golden Heart? but it seems to get pollinated anyway.
I do only get eating off the tree numbers, not enough to can or freeze.
I'm assuming some buddies around might help that situation too?
Thanks for any help.
