I tell my students to pot up their grafted trees and treat them like house plants if the weathers too cold to put them outside.

Good luck,
Little John

A question for you all:

I have been asked to lead a class on heritage apples for a permaculture group who hale from in and around Spokane, and to give them a chance to try their own grafts. My concern is that the class is to be held February 23 - weeks before the ground thaws in this part of the country. 

How best to handle bench grafts several weeks before the ground is likely to thaw? We will us Mm111 root stock.

Thank you,
