Re: [nafex] Quince for Pear roostock

I understand that there can be incompatability issues with Conference and an
interstem is recommended.  Calcareous soils should be avoided because this can
bring on "lime-induced chlorosis".  Although tolerant of wet soils quince
seems to do better in the hotter drier years  Cold-hardiness is also a concern
from late spring frosts.  For more information on quince rootstock we grow,
visit our website at  willamettenurseries.com
Good luck,
Devin Cooper
