Apple Scionwood

Yesterday was scionwood gathering day. These grafting sticks are from local apple trees making them the best material possible.  We will be doing grafting onto rootstocks in a few weeks — so stay tuned for grafting announcements. Until then, the scionwood will be stored in the refrigerator and wrapped in damp paper to keep them fresh.
