How is rootstock grown?
Correspondingly, what is the rootstock of a plant?
Rootstock. A rootstock is part of a plant, often an underground part, from which new above-ground growth can be produced. It could also be described as a stem with a well developed root system, to which a bud from another plant is grafted.
Likewise, what is m111 rootstock? A vigorous, well anchored, drought tolerant rootstock. M111 creates a large semi dwarf tree 15-17 ft. if unpruned. Widely adapted to light or heavy soils. Resistant to collar rot.
