I did learn something about M9 on M111 rootstocks.
I planted them at several different depths as an experiment.
The best results were to bury the tree to half way up the M9, with the
M111 cpmpletely buried.
They all grew fine.
But when the M111 is exposed I got burr knots.
Does not seem to affect the growth oor fruiting, just unsightly.
