The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 21, 2020, for shipment around March 16.
We sell scions (scionwood) in two ways. Each single 8" stick will graft 3 or 4 trees, and comes with a small paper ID label. Scionwood by the foot (minimum order of 10 feet) will usually graft about 6 or 8 trees from one foot of scionwood. You can graft right away or store it for later use. Stored properly, it will keep quite well for several weeks.
Scions are twigs, not trees. They have no roots and will not grow if you plant them.
