apple scion gathering
it is January in north eastern Minnesota. is it too late to cut grafting scions to be used this coming spring? and can I store them in plastic bags in the refrigerator.
St. Louis County Minnesota
Wood can be collected when the wood is dormant, so now through mid March would be the time. The scion wood will keep if properly stored for about 3 months. https://watauga.ces.ncsu.edu/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/COLLECTING-AND-STORING-SCION-WOOD-1.pdf?fwd=no https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/hort/info/fruit/graft.htm https://www.canr.msu.edu/news/selecting_and_storing_scion_wood_for_grafting
