Nature is amazing!

 Check out this multi graft now or as known as a family tree. This is 3 types of apple varieties growing on the one tree!


This was a tree stump of an apple tree that got knocked over by the council mowers last year. I cut it off below the break,  dug out the roots and repotted it as I know these always grow back. Even if your tree is snapped in half it will always grow back from the roots or below the break again.


I kept this rootstock in a pot and and in early spring I did an experiment that I never thought would have worked.  I grafted 3 types of native Irish apple tree scions / cuttings onto the rootstock just to see what would have and look at this now!

Isn't this amazing guys, I never expected this to happen at all.

I never kept a record of which varieties I grafted as I never believed it would work.
