I grafted a batch of apples, stored them at about 40 to 45 degrees for 
about two weeks, planted them out and then we got temps down to the upper 
teens on two occassions and the mid twenties on three or four. Any 
experiences to say whether or not my grafts will be ok? I should have 
heeled soil up around the graft unions to protect them from the cold but 
our weather man was way off in his predictions of lows in the upper 
twenties, still, I should have known better.
