More Fruit Trees, Layering Rootsuckers

I love apples, really love apples, pears, peaches and...  That's part of why I do, what I do - bringing tasty and nutritious food possibilities in a sustainable way to people.  This week I did another How-To video showing you how.

We've talked about growing fruit trees, and root stocks, from seed.  While simple and free, these may or may not be high quality rootstocks, and have unknown characteristics.

Here's another way to grow your own new rootstocks for more 'free' fruit trees, and these will be a known type so you can plan your backyard or acreage orchard or food forest better.  Check it out in the new video below-

Once you've gotten several new rooted trees you can try your hand at grafting, to clone the trees you currently have, or swap with friends to bring unique varieties home.

Have a great week, and happy growing!
