Gordon,

Tell us more about the scionwood you stored for 18 years.  If you were
able to get a graft to take with that wood, that must be a record,
especially when you stored them next apples in an ordinary fridge.

    You are right. But I have stored scions properly incased in the
right plastic bags for 18 years. along with as I have now apple in the
same drawer in the fridge and have never been affected by it even though
I knew it was true.

Hi, 

Did some quick research on storage... 

According toNorth Caroline Cooperative Extension service: 

http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/depts/hort/hil/grafting.html 

"Never store scions in refrigerated units where fruits or 
vegetables are currently kept or have been stored recently. 
Stored fruits and vegetables release ethylene gas, which can 
cause woody plant buds to abort, making the scions useless." 

Later, 
Tom
