Looking for Citrus Rootstock Seedling trees-Calif

I'm going to try my hand at grafting for the first time, and will be ordering budwood in June from UCR CCPP budwood sale, and now need to find compatible rootstock seedling trees to graft to. I cannot find an online source anywhere, and I'm afraid I'll have to resort to starting from seed, which would mean I'd have to wait probably 6 to 12 months before I could graft to them. Does anyone know of a source to purchase rootstock seedlings? I did email Citrus Tree Source, so hopefully they'll respond to me. If I don't hear back, I'll try calling them. But beyond that, I'm at a loss as to where to find rootstock seedling trees in California (or a company that can ship to CA.) Can anyone offer any resources?

I ordered liners from Citrus Tree Source last year - they were very willing to work with me on a small order and some credit card and shipping wackiness (on my end). Haven't ordered rootstock from them, but they're good folks and I can't imagine they won't get back to you.

Thanks starlady, good to know. I'm also sure they can give me some recommendations on compatible rootstocks for the budwood I'm hoping to get.
