[NAFEX] Rootstocks/dormancy

I had written "Rootstock dormancy patterns seem to have little effect on 
survival of
cultivar", I meant to say the "dormancy" of the cultivar with an emphasis on 
the word "seem".
The old question of "imparting" of hardiness of rootstock to scion or vice 
versa hasn't really been figured out, I don't believe, and that may be 
because dormancy and rootstock/scion interactions are complicated. So even 
though I don't see outward signs of an effect of the rootstock on the scion, 
it may not mean there is no effect.
