Apple Scion Wood; single live cutting
Priced per cutting. Each cutting is around 8" long and works for up to three grafts. All the varieties we offer can tolerate the coldest of cold that Wisconsin has to throw at us.
Mark braves the below zero temperatures and knee-deep snow to harvest the scion wood deep in its' dormancy, so we don't have to. Now that's love.
Attach some scionwood varieties to that wild crabapple growing along the hedgerow or add more to your existent orchard. Multitudes of design possibilities.
