Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Plums and prunes are more difficult trees to propagate. Grandpa recommends "chip" budding, which is easy to learn and highly successful. You can also use "T-budding". You usually can start budding when your scionwood is mature and buds are developed and readily and easily cut and removed from your scion stick. Usually by August in most areas.


A Little History about Myrobalan Standard Plum Rootstock

Myrobalan plum is the common name for a wild plum that is very hardy and commonly found. The fruit of the "Myro" plum is usually smaller than a gold ball and may come in a range of colors from pure yellow and gold to fire-engine red--- and all combinations of colors in between. Sometimes it is sweet, often it is very tart and will make your mouth "pucker" right up. In any case, its main use now is as an excellent rootstock for plums and prunes.
