For me, one of the things that marks a "Homestead" apart from a "Farm" is the desire to be able to produce all the things that you need.

Ten years ago we planted an orchard to produce apples & cider

But buying the apple trees didn't feel self reliant.

So we learned to graft our own fruit trees. We did a video series on the topic if anyone would like to learn

The trouble was we had to buy rootstocks (you know where this is going don't you?)

Tonight we publish a video on how to propagate crab apples to produce rootstocks. We show both coppicing & layering. The principle can be applied to producing fuel, hedging plants & much more.

So now we have become self sufficient in rootstocks through layering & coppicing.

I hope our fellow tree lovers find it interesting
