Root­stock 106

Amateur Gardening - - Pick Of The Very Best -

EAT­ING and culi­nary ap­ples that are avail­able to buy are of­ten grafted on to a range of dif­fer­ent root­stocks, re­sult­ing in trees that will grow to a range of sizes – from neat and com­pact to large and vig­or­ous.

Crab ap­ples are nat­u­rally less vig­or­ous and there’s of­ten lit­tle or no choice of root­stocks: they are usu­ally grafted on to a semi-vig­or­ous root­stock known as MM106, or onto M27 for trees in­tended for con­tain­ers.

Look for M27 root­stock for con­tain­ers
