RE: [nafex] Re: parafilm results

Thanks for your reply.  I need to do some reading on summer grafting.  I
don't want to have you send it and then have it just sitting in my frig.
Hang on to your Ribston Pippin a little longer and I'll get back to you when
I learn how to use it.

Wow!  You're ambitious.  Depending on the answer to the "how do you mail
the stuff" question, I may be able to give you a few of these.  I have
some left over dormant scion wood of Ribston Pippin in the fridge, and
last year I successfully grafted some Sweet Sixteen, Pitmasten
Pineapple, and Caville Blanc.  I might be able to spare a little of it
this year (have to check how it's growing.)  I'd suggest another source
for it if you can find it, though, as I suspect the tree I have them all
grafted onto has viruses.  (The tree is vigorous as all get out, but if
you have fancy rootstocks, they may not do so well.  I grafted
everything to the same mature wild crabapple.)
