Early Scionwood Cutting - What does it involve?

Posted by John Kring on Dec 21st 2019

We were asked to get an heirloom apple scionwood order out by Jan 6.  Normally, we don't cut and ship that early but it was for a very good cause.  This morning we had to put everything together to go and cut scionwood for the first time this season.   Here's what we took with us.

  1. Home Depot pail
  2. Felco pruners
  3. Masking tape
  4. Sharpie
  5. Measuring stick.  We cut 12" sticks.
  6. A 4mil poly bag
  7. A map of the orchard
  8. Polaris UTV.  The snow is already getting deep at the Gillett orchard.
