It's hard in Canada (my part at least) to source rootstocks.
However, I have found a source for
Siberian Crab ( malus baccata) and Royalty Crab.
 Siberian crab - my research indicates that this rootstock is
extremely hardy more so that Antonovka, - which is good because I will
the clones in a zone 3 - 4 area). However, I have read that
there is "compatibility" issues with this rootstock -
but no one ever says how serious this may be or what
particular varieties will not work with m. baccata.
Any information on m. baccata as a roostock , especially
about the compatibility issue will be appreciated.
 Royalty crab - how suitable is this rootock for grafting,
especially for zone 3/4 planting?
Gatineau, Quebec zone 5 and Wilno, Ontario zone
