This reminds me of a question that might, or might not, be pertinent.
When it comes to soil requirements - acid soil for blueberries, for
example - is it the rootstock or the fruiting part of the plant that has
these requirements. In other words, could you grow blueberries in an
alkaline soil if they were grafted onto a rootstock that would do well
Just curious. I've never done any grafting (yet - since it certainly
sounds fascinating), but I was wondering how that works.
