Del, have you tried budding them? It's easy, and it seems the normal 
method with stone fruit.

Apricot seedlings probably come truer to the parents than most other 
species, but if you've got a good local apricot identified, you might 
want at least one clone.

I would be surprised if Westcot (bred at Morden, Manitoba) were not 
available in the U.S.

Bernie, have you any experience of Brookcot in Edmonton? I seem to 
have read of it having been bred at Brooks, Alberta where I 
understand the chinooks are pretty severe.
