[NAFEX] Rootstock observation

With some Bud.118 and MM111 grafts (and ungrafted rootstocks) side-by-side,
I'd like to report that Bud.118 goes dormant at least a week ahead of MM111.
Its leaves are down and MM111 hasn't even turned color yet. Above-graft
growth on Bud.118 is still green, mostly! Some of the topwork on MM111 is
showing color, with green MM111 leaves below the grafts. Interesting!
I wish I had enough grafts to say "XYZ cultivar goes dormant 1 week sooner
on Bud.118 than MM111", but that will have to wait for the McArthur grant!
Tanis Cuff, s.WI, z4 to 5, decent soil but droughty (except this year!)
FREE pop-up blocking with the new MSN Toolbar get it now!
