try this Order Form and use the Excel file below for availability…still working on my very simple website skills…
Scionwood orders can begin as early December with requests through email. By February 1st I will have the Excel file list mostly complete. I pack and ship approximately the last Mondays of January and February. I will be busy farming in Pennsylvania during March through mid May so variety selection is limited to excel file green highlighted-also shipping the last Mondays of March & April, mid May- and back to full list May and June and July. I will not ship other times and only 1x per month.
Fruit tree Scionwood is the graftable one-year old wood variety (e.g. apple such as ‘Gravenstein’ or a pear such as ‘Bartlett’) wood for grafting scionwood to a rootstock or ‘understock’. In Snohomish, Washington we cut scionwood in December, January and February and hold chilled through June, then fresh wood is cut for summer budding. See the Excel file list with an updated column of scionwood (and rootstock or trees)
1 scion (8.5″ typical) should make 3 or 4 2-bud grafts. Prices: $5 for 1; 2 = $9.50; 3 = $13.50; 4 = $17; 5 to 9 $4 each; 10 to 19 $3.50ea., 20 to 49 $3 ea.; 50 to 99 $2.50 ea.; 100-199 $2 ea., 200 – 499 $1.50 ea.; 500-999 $1 ea.; 1000+ $0.80 ea.
Choose scionwood from the list below, then email or postmail your selectionsYou may make payment immediately without confirmation only if you provide a list of alternates as some varieties are very limited-but most wood is available through July.

Rootstock choices are:
(Let me know your needs as order goes in early and I don’t always handle hundreds unless there’s a call for this)
EMLA27,¼”(20%), 20 available; P2/P22 available: Trees on m27 and P22/p22/Mark are great value for the amateur and home gardener needing compact, precocious trees for small gardens or patio pots. Trees need little pruning after the first five years, except for occasional shortening back of spurs.
Mark, 1/4″ 20% 100+ available: Mark has been a good performer for us-especially in pots. They are stronger-rooted than emla27,p22 and p2 but are sensitive to drought- drip irrigate on a schedule.
Bud 9,¼”(30%), few available: Bud 9 has exceptional winter hardiness, crown rot resistance (phytophthora), promotes open scion growth, and produces crops in two to three years with a yield efficiency like that of M-9. Bud 9 is common in high-density plantings, planted 2 to 4 feet apart in the row. Also used as interstem on Bud 118 and EMLA111EMLA 9 T337,¼”(30%) 100 available: Like Bud 9, EMLA 9 is a full dwarf withg high precocity, heavy soil tolerant, phyththora resistant, wooley apple aphid resistant and to it’s credit, not quite as brittle as Bud 9. Space 2 to 4 foot in the rowNic 29®, 3/8″(m9/40%), Stocky, 3 y.o., 50+ available. When considering a high density orchard the M-9 Nic® 29 rootstock would be a good choice if you’re looking for a more vigorous M-9 clone. Highly recommended for those diploid varieties where vigour is necessary to bring the apples to a good size.Geneva 11®, 1/4” (35%), zero available, use Geneva stock for apple replant disease-where you need to plant in an old apple tree site.Geneva 16®, (35%) zero available-Virus susceptible where latent viruses reside in particular varieties, has survived severe drought, limited use. All I ask is… why?PAJAM-2®, 40%) ~zero available-When considering a high density orchard the M-9 Pajam 2® rootstock would be a good choice if you’re looking for a vigorous M-9.EMLA26, (45%), some older Available Recommended for use on all but badly drained soils. It is particularly valuable as a dwarfing stock where satisfactory performance on M-9 is in doubt. It is useful for high density plantings. When budded with spur-type scions, EMLA 26 should be planted on soils of higher fertility. EMLA 26 is not as vigorous as EMLA 7, but is much easier to manage in the orchard.Supporter® 4, 3/16” (55%) 100 available: Trees on Supporter® 4 are more uniform than those on M-26 with little burr knotting and overgrowth, also it is more collar rot resistant. Precocity similar to M9(medium-high). This rootstock is ideal for low-vigor or replant sites and low-vigor varieties.EMLA 7, 1/4″(60%), 5+ older available Strongly anchored, tends to throw suckers, lower precocity efficiency than smaller stocks, a good semi-dwarf variety for low fertility sites and low water.Geneva 30®, zero available(60%) similar to M7 but somewhat brittle, might want to stake it, limitedEMLA 111 1/4″ (70%) 100+ available : excellent all purpose strong root. Has proven long-lived over 100 years.Bud 118 1/4″(95%) 100+ available-coming later: Excellent for No-water sites and low fertility. These are self-supporting, Excellent for “double-working” or interstem grafts.Interstem Rootstock are $12.50. They are 2 years old unless noted. We use B118 or EMLA111 rootstock with B9, P22, P2 or EMLA 27 10-12″ interstem. These are taller in shipping where we use 36″+ boxes. Priority Shipping is $22 with $2 each additional tree.
Quince A, 1/4″(60%) 10 available, Some varieties (Bartlett, Bosc, Seckel and Clapp) are not compatible with the Provence Quince clones, and thus require an interstem to form a strong union. Anjou, Comice, Flemish Beauty and Swiss Bartlett are varieties which are compatible with Quince rootstock. Support of trees should be considered.Quince BA29-C, ¼”(65%) 5 available, Grafted to Rescue and Flemish Beauty as an interstem, same as Quince AOld Home x Farmingdale 97, none available (90%), A clonal rootstock of Old Home x Farmingdale, this rootstock is resistant to pear decline and fireblight. It is a superior rootstock for vigorous pear trees. Hardy and resilient to cold. It provides good anchoring and yield efficiency.Bench grafted BUDDED trees are $15 each, shipping is $20 up to 8 trees. $0.50 each additional: 1 year old and last year’s budded are ALSO $15-unless noted see Grafted Trees 2016PayPal (add 3%) or mail: Gil@skipleyfarm.com call/text 206-679-6576 or mail to: Skipley Farm 7228 Skipley Rd.
