Scion & Rootstock Cuttings - Based on availability
Our medium and tall dormant vines are ready for the training wire. These products reduce the need for multiple training passes & extra time tying to the stake. Because these vines are more mature, they possess a hardier root system and the time to fruit production is reduced. Medium and tall vines work well as replants, too, as they do not get shaded out by older adjacent vines. These vines are offered in both a dormant & potted form.
