I would like to collect apple and persimmon scionwood but had a couple
This year has been a warm one. Can I wait until later in the month to
collect (before buds swell), or will warm weather in general make the
scions less useful for grafting? Normally, we have 2 months of cold and
it is not an issue, but this year we have prunus blooming and daffodils
emerging in December- at least 6 weeks earlier than typical.
Do I give preference to collecting scionwood in the lower portions of
the plant, the so-called zone of juvenility, or does it matter?
Thanks for any insight on this!
