Malus var.
ROOTSTOCK APPLES Z3/7m
We have an assortment of prairie hardy seedling apples suitable for rootstock on which to bud your favourite apple varieties. In early August, cut budwood from the best tasting, storing, disease-resistant apples in your area. Then graft their buds on to our rootstock. This produces a long-living, full-sized tree that grows beyond the reach of deer.
