I ordered mine from Raintree earlier this year then Cummins had 100 for sale that all went in one day. If anyone is still interested in wanting Krymsk 1 rootstock for spring then I’m letting you know that Cummins just put up 413 of them today. Raintree and Grandpas still don’t have any.
What do you plan on grafting to it?
I ordered some scions from Bob Purvis for this spring, Polly plum is going onto K1, Big Blue plum is going onto K1 (Even though I bought a tree from Millers before they went Tits Up and it has yet to produce, won’t say I have scions for it til I know it is that and this spring will be the 5th leaf for it) and the other scion is Purpleheart plum and that I plan on grafting to Marianna GF8-1. As for the other K1 rootstocks I just plan on putting them in pots for this year and planting them into the ground this fall. If I really want I could prune off a piece of Tomcot apricot that I planted last season from Raintree and see how that does on it.
It’ll be interesting to see how it does with peaches and nectarines. I’ve read mixed reports.
Ya, I am not that bold enough to try peaches on it yet since I saw the reports from ( It was either No. or So. Carolina and I can’t remember which that had dismal reports of death!). Besides this will be the first year I try grafting anything and I did buy a grafting tool to see how it works out. Nothing against Old School knives and X-acto knives but I also don’t have much space on 1/3 acre here if it is even that.
Thanks for posting this. I bought 10 K1 rootstocks for doing some experiments with apricot seedlings I’m growing.
