TRIAL VARIETIES AVAILABLE FROM PETER SALONIUS

(Updated list coming soon for 2017)

Canada Plant Hardiness Zone 4b.
*** 900 DD (no pesticides)--excess disease results in removal

NOTE: I have a lot of varieties, but only a few plants of each variety in my collection, so I can usually meet requirements for enough dormant grape wood CUTTINGS in the fall (you store them in your fridge, safe from extreme winter temperatures, until it is time to root them in the spring) to get you started with new varieties ---- but I can not supply tremendous numbers of cuttings

White pine blister rust and mildew resistant, need two varieties for cross pollination


Cuttings should be ordered, to establish priority for scarce varieties, in early September.

Cuttings shipped ONLY in late November and early December to avoid critical cold injury in the event that snow is late arriving.

Cuttings $2.00 (postage included) each, labeled and tied in bunches of 5 or 10 / wrapped in wet paper toweling inside plastic bags / shipped by Canada Post in cardboard boxes ready for refrigerator storage until spring. --- Cuttings $1.50 (postage included) each if ordering 10 or more per variety.

All cuttings shipped to British Columbia must be heat treated under the supervision of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to avoid the importation of the phylloxera root louse into the province // so that cuttings bound for BC will be $4.00 each, labelled and tied in bunches of 5 or 10 / wrapped in wet paper toweling inside plastic bags / shipped by Canada Post in cardboard boxes ready for refrigerator storage until spring. (Minimum order to British Columbia: $400).

Cuttings can be planted in garden soil after the danger of frost has passed (mid May in New Brunswick) for rooting during the summer. Place at least half of the buds on the cutting below the soil.

Leaves will appear within three weeks and since these new leaves place considerable water stress on the cuttings which have NO ROOTS --- irrigation is necessary whenever the surface of the soil has been dry for two or three days or when there has not been a soaking rain during the past week. I use a cheap dripper hose (from Canadian Tire) 100 feet long, run up one side and down the other side of a 50 foot row of cuttings spaced about 6 inches apart.

The first small roots will appear toward the end of July with lots of roots by the end of August. Irrigation should stop in early September to allow the (now) rooted cuttings to harden off for winter.

Some protection (soil buried or piled-on dry leaves) should be offered in the first winter as new roots are close to the soil surface.

Rooted cuttings can be transplanted in early spring, as soon as the soil has thawed, to their vineyard position (in deep holes) after one or two summers in the garden.
