Thanks, Joe.

80 degrees for about six weeks means a big effort and cost.    I don't think it's
worth it for a few corkscrew hazelnuts.  But I'll get the MSU booklet anyway.

: One of Mid-Michigan's fruit/nut growers grafts filberts commercially.  It is not
: easy to get takes.  Sid is a nice guy but Sid does not talk much.
:
: What he does say:
: -Filberts are very fussy about callousing temperature.  He built a building to
: callous filbert grafts in.  He keeps the temp very close to 80 F.  He places the
: grafted rootstock in a large pot and callouses the whole shebang in his
building.
: He does not worry if it pushes leaves because he has little shock since he
leaves
: it in the pot.
: -He often  use a simple splice graft.  That may be due to the large diameters he
: sometimes works with.....it might be due to the tendency for the top part of the
: rootstock to slough-off....as noted by Gordon
: -He leaves a "nurse bud" at the top of the rootstock, also pointed out by
Gordon.
