Michelle, my Harglow tree is still dormant and I could send you some
scionwood, if you like.  Please let me know your mailing address and
about what size diameter scionwood you need.  Will try to match that if
I also have access to scionwood of the Canadian apricot 'Debbie's Gold'.
Here's a description: 'Debbie's Gold Apricot': Successful in Winnipeg.
Good taste, eaten fresh or for canning.  However, you may want to grow a
cultivar that has better quality since you live where such a hardy
apricot is not really needed.

Subject: [NAFEX] apricot scion

Dear Group,
I was just out rooting around in the orchard and garden and find I have
3 apricot and three cherry rootstocks heeled in in pots that are still
alive from 2 years ago.  They are in a neglected area, and the last I
had check it looked like the bunnies had found their way into my chicken
screen cages around them, so I had written off those rootstock.  I am
delighted to find these 6 still viable but have not made any efforts
toward scion woods.  Would anyone have some of the "Har" group that I
could graft for my apricots?  That was the original reason I bought
these rootstocks a couple of years ago.  The cherries I dream of hardy
sweets, maybe some of the yellows so the birds do not recognize??  I
call myself zone 4/5 here in SE Wis.  I have only 1 sweet cherry
surviving; I think Golden Heart?  but it seems to get pollinated anyway.
I do only get eating off the tree numbers,  not enough to can or freeze.
I'm assuming some buddies around might help that situation too?
Thanks for any help.
Most sincerely,
Michelle Horner
