Re: [nafex] Re: chestnut crab

Must be your brown thumb, Lucky!!  Last year we finished 106 of 110 Chestnut budded on Geneva 30 and 38 of 40 on MM.106.  Haven't tried dormant grafting.

Hmm.  I tried grafting Chestnut crab two years in a row, with scions
purchased from two different sources, on several different rootstocks -
M.111, M.9, M.7, and seedlings.  Never could get a take, and I didn't
handle it any differently from any of the other apples, on which I got >90%
successful takes.
