Plum trees on own roots
Hi I've been reading on this site for years but just got the courage to finally post. Ive been wondering if in my zone if it would be ok to try a few plum trees on there own roots started from dormant cuttings. The tree I have in mind was sold to my mother 20 yrs ago and was labled burbank plum semi dwarf. The tree is about 15 feet tall and not overly vigorous growing putting out about a foot and a half of growth each year. This year her neighbor sprayed roundup and it drifted over and caused most of the tree to die. I hate to lose it and there is still part of the tree alive. Would the tree be to vigorous on its own roots? Would it be possible or more plausable to start root cuttings from the rootstock and graft to that? I hate to lose the tree forever not really knowing the variety seeing as it came from wal-mart. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
