The use of rootstock is the basis for modern tree production for most fruit and nuts and ornamental's. It enables a known variety to be mass produced, by using scions or buds that are grafted onto rootstocks.
Rootstock also determines the growth rate and ultimate height. Each type of rootstock is suited for different soils and climates be it cold hardiness or wetness, and also disease and bacterial resistance.
We supply as a package of grafting tape and sealing compound, in amounts suitable for 10, 50 and 100 grafts.
The only item we do not supply is a knife.
Please be aware that in the interests of the environment, the sealing compound may come in used bottles.
