Multi-prunus Rootstock

Multi-prunus rootstock are highly versatile.
St Julian is a multi-prunus rootstock, suitable for grafting certain varieties of Peaches, Nectarines, Apricots, Plums, Gages, Damsons, and Almonds. Whereas Myrobalan is suitable for all plums and some apricots.

Grafting stone fruit is not straight forward, and not all rootstock are compatible with all varieties.

The scion variety you graft onto a multi-prunus rootstock will also have a large influence on the vigour and mature height of your tree. For example, St Julian is more dwarfing for peach or nectarine, and less dwarfing for plum.

Multi-prunus rootstock are not suitable for grafting Cherry varieties, even though they are a stone fruit -
a cherry
variety can only be grafted onto a cherry rootstock.
