Where do I get, or what do I use for root stock to grow good apples in Northern Minn?

a catalog for a place that specializes in root stocks for grafting. I'll take me awhile to dig it up, probably be the weekend but I'll look. I think their main business is wholesale for nursuries and orchards, but they will send small quantities, too.

you can email me in case I get overwhelmed and forget. Just delete the words "deletethis" from my email address above.

Lets see if I understand this root stock consept.

I would like to grow peach trees from cuttings of existing trees that I prune in the winter. So I was told that apple (crab) makes good root stock. So now I find some fine fellow to sell me some roots and then I graft my cutting onto the root stock? Sorry to sound so dumb but I am on this subject. Please help !!!!!!

Les should be here in a few minutes to help you out. I know around here they were using some crabapple trees to graft old apple tree branches on.

No. I don't know nothin about this root stock business. And I have tried "whip" grafting without success.
I like to watch the trees grow but am increasingly discouraged with actually having any hope of a successful crop. Too many things working against me.
