Scion Wood

Please note: scion wood is only sold in conjunction with rootstock

Please order early to avoid disappointment, as some varieties have limited availability

Maple Grove Nursery grow some of the best deciduous fruiting varieties for a home garden and orchard. We sell cuts of the dormant stems, which are known as scion wood or grafting wood, so that you can graft these onto a rootstock and grow your own fruit trees.

Scion wood is one year old growth taken from a parent tree and is suitable for Winter and Spring grafting, while the scion is still dormant.

When grafted onto a rootstock, the resulting fruit and
 flower will be true to the parent tree, but will also have the benefits of the rootstock.

Scions can be grafted onto the rootstock straight away, while both the rootstock and scion are dormant.
If you prefer, you can graft when the rootstock is beginning to break dormancy, but it is important that the scion is still dormant.

We collect scion cuts early in Winter, and store them in the cooler. Each scion is approximately 20 cm in length, which can allow for 2-3 grafts from each length, depending on the number of buds grafted and the space between buds.

When you receive your scion wood, please keep it in a sealed plastic bag in the fridge to maintain dormancy until you are ready to graft.
