Re: [nafex] Quince for Pear roostock


I put the Ubileen on hawthorn a couple of years back, because I had 
received some scionwood at a swapmeet, and didn't have a pear rootstock on 
hand at the moment.  I knew where a wild-growing hawthorn seedling was, out 
in the cow pasture, so I lifted it and transplanted it into the 
orchard.  It's growing perhaps a bit slower than pears grafted onto pear 
rootstock the same year, but looks healthy, just the same.

I lifted every small hawthorn I could find this past winter and 
transplanted them closer to the house - used most as rootstocks for some 
tiny little mayhaw scions a friend had sent, but have saved 3 or 4 of the 
larger ones to be budded to pears later in the season.
