[NAFEX] Krymsk Rootstocks

I had this same problem with the Krymsk 5 rootstock but after getting the 
virus free scionwood they worked fine.  I know I have been happier with the 
St Julian A rootstock than I have been with the Krymsk 1 rootstock.  Not 
sure about the virus problem with the plum as I have been with the Krymsk 5. 
I suppose that could be true with the virus problem too with the plum.

Just a note on the Krymsk rootstocks - I've had fairly poor luck with
viruses on them, I believe.  Most seem to take fine, but I lost the
majority of the Krymsk-5 cherry grafts in 2010 and also the Krymsk-1
plum and apricot grafts this year (lost the whole plant, not just the
graft).  Might be worthwhile to order certified virus free scionwood if
you'll be experimenting with these.
