    Sorry, should have included more details....
    I have 2 pear and 1 apple tree I don't like and would like to re-do them.
    And my dad has some golden delicious that I grew up that will be destroyed probably in the next few months (he's moving next week actually) that I would like to try grafting onto my worthless apple.

    If nothing else I'll obtain some scions and try in spring if that is best.

    thanks

    "what is a root stock"

    "also would i be able to use my scions with the rootstock?"

    Yes

    "and if i could how wouldi?"

    I would recommend getting a book that
    details the different grafting methods
    before proceeding.

    Read through this whole thread and you'll
    fine several links that offer great info.

    Good luck

    I am equally jealous of your ability
    to grow citrus. I used to try at my
    folks (RIP) Florida home in New Smyrna
    Beach, but they were too close to the
    beach and the salt in the air was too
    brutal.

    Some nice chemical free citrus would be
    a nice addition to your honey stand George.

    If you are whip grafting the diameter of the scion should equal the diameter of the rootstock.

    When budding it is far less of an issue.

    As I said earlier...... Pour over the
    great links cited in the posts in this
    thread earlier. It's all there. Great
    stuff.

    Bigger is not better.

    Good reminder to get my stock out of the crisper in refrigerator and get busy. I was going to experiment “pushing up” my espalier apples to another type and adding some “honey crisp” to a couple of my existing apples. I was told to wait until I had bud swell before I put my grafting stock on. Any opinion on this? I got 4” of snow here this week (and I keep saying it does not snow here). Jealous of the citrus but also of the pictures of guys in their T shirt back east.

    Since this 6 year old thread has been resuscitated I'll add that I'm waiting for 100 MM-106's to arrive so I can start grafting some cider apple varieties.
