     My response---------

     Peach (and many other stone fruits) require higher temps to callus.
While they can be grafted by use of dormant wood, the problem is simply
keeping the graftwood viable until outside temps rise sufficiently.
     If you'd want to pot up some rootsocks, get them growing in a
greenhouse, etc., graft them as soon as you saw growth on the stocks, I'm
certain that success rate would be very high.
