Preserving hierloom apples through grafting
I have about six or so apple varieties that I want to preserve. The trees are old and with rotted out cores and limbs falling off during snow, ice, and wind storms. Grafting them onto new more resistant root stock seems like a good idea, but I know nothing about grafting. Where can I get rootstock, learn to graft, or find somebody who will do it right the first time? I would probably want 3 trees of each variety so my daughter could have one set and I could have a backup. I have 20 acres, so space is not my issue, I would rather opt for disease resistance and hardiness.
