Hi Del,
    You inquiry couldn't be better timed.  By coincidence tomorrow I will be
with Dr. Evans of Evans cherry fame in his greenhouse doing some bench
grafting for a couple of hours.  I will relay your inquiry, and post an
answer from "the man himself" tomorrow for you.

where we are having an early spring, and the golf courses open this weekend,
about 2 weeks early!
