I bought a few apple trees from Maple valley last year on Bud9. They had Lindamac and Sansa which I wanted. The trees grew nice the first year. Came as 3.5’ whips and grew to 5’ by the end of the 2021 growing season.
@Spartan — it is a very nice looking tree… the break was not ideal but other than that the tree looked great. The roots looked very nice to me, it was packaged well, roots nice and moist, nice buds on the whip. No complaints really. And cost 25.00 which seems very reasonable to me (considering todays crazy prices).
I included 4 m7 rootstock in the order (14.00), 2 novamac scion (8.00), and a Victorinox fixed grafting knife (8.00).
@Robert … i really did not want the b9 rootstock but that was the only nursery I could find novamac at… and they only offered it on b9.
So… i got one…
They also had good prices on m7 rootstocks and novamac scionwood. I grafted a couple of those and both turned out well. I gave one to a friend and will plant the other in my field this fall. It is getting close to 4 ft tall now.
Ps… that novamac on b9 set one bunch of blossoms this spring (first year planted in container) and they are very pretty blossoms.
