Grundstammar del 3 – plums, apricot, peach, almond

Plums and its relatives apricot, peach and almond can be grafted and inoculated in a relatively wide range of rootstocks. Here I list the rootstocks as my knowledge is suitable for our climate. Please comment on the compilation, antingen genom att mejla mig på eller genom att lämna en kommentar i fältet nedan. I will update the tables as I get new information. The entire current list is also available in "Forest Garden: growing edible everywhere" on the sides 424-426.

  • Hi
    Har beställt 2 st mandelträd.
    I have a question about grafting or eyelashing of almonds on plums growing on the plot here outside Kristianstad. Here was when I moved here many thorny plum trees with small yellow or red plums, however, it's not something I'm fond of. These trees are hardy and always give plenty of plums sometimes so that branches break. They bloom in the month of March-April and it may be near the flowering of almond trees. Almonds are likely to be grafted onto these old varieties.

    • Hi Lasse,
      you can graft almonds on plums. Probably you have cherry plum on the plot and it is the same rootstock that is often used in grafting almonds. You could try to oscillate in August if you have good seed price until then.
      Greetings, Philipp

      • Thank you so much for the answer, which was nice to know. Here, these cherry plums grow a little here and so your answer suited me perfectly.
        Have a great summer / Lasse L

  • Hello Philip, I want to plant a chrysanthemum hedge with primarily small blue-black plums and would like to buy rootstocks of some chrysanthemum variety to keep prices down. Ideally, I also want rootstocks that do not shoot root shoots. I can get hold of St Julien A cheaply in Germany and it does not take root as far as I understand, apparently gives small green plums, but I lack information about the taste. Have you possibly tried? What about Wavit or Pixy? Do you or anyone else know what their unique fruits look and taste like?
    It seems that these varieties do not shoot root shoots either. Would be nice to skip the breeding of at least most of the hedge in this way I think.
    With kind regards,

    • Hej Magnus,
      what an interesting question! Unfortunately, I have not tasted the fruit of any of these varieties as far as I know. Good luck with the hedge! /Philipp

  • Do you have rootstocks to sell?
    I want something to graft apricot on, preferably weakly growing. Pixie, St Julienne
    If you do not sell, do you have any tips where I can find?
    Ebeplant and Gränna have sold out

  • Hej Philipp,
    Bought a Victoria tree. Stod “weak-growing” on the sign in the nursery, men “Middle-tailed” on the label I see now. See also the designation “Flowers – IC S.J.-A Nypot, can I interpret S.J.-A as S:t Julien A’, or it has nothing to do with this? Now I'm afraid I bought a tree that was too strong and planted approx 2 meters from the residential road!

    • Hi! It sounds like it's St. The Julien tree is grafted on, it is also the most common rootstock. I would not call it weak-growing right away, but it depends on what you compare with.

      • Thank you so much for the help! I'll probably have to look for a tree with a Pixy trunk instead!
