You don't say what your purpose is.  Is it to propagate a rootstock?, a 
seedling apple tree?, or what?  I propagate hundreds of apple rootstock 
by the stooling method every year.  Some propagate easier than others.  
I can tell you my procedures for that if you are interested.  If it is 
rootstock you plan to propagate, can you tell us which one(s)?
