Lovell Rootstock is used for peach and other stone fruits and is slightly more resistant to wet conditions than other rootstocks making it a good choice for the Pacific Northwest. Lovell is somewhat susceptible to nematodes and bacterial canker but it is still one of the best peach rootstocks for our climate.
Making sure you choose the correct rootstock can be the difference between a tree thriving or dying on your site. Rootstocks not only determine the overall size, vigor, and precociousness of a tree but also what soil types it can grow in, its drought tolerance, and how well anchored your tree will be.
Now you can propagate your own fruit trees for very low costs or preserve rare and heirloom varieties by grafting them onto to resilient rootstocks.
Be sure to check compatibility of your desired scion with your choice of rootstock.
