Rootstock

Anonymous added on March 15, 2014 | Answered

I have a Satsumma Mandarin tree. Almost a year now the rootstock started growing and it is much taller than the grafted part. Will this delay the growth of the grafted tree and lessen the fruits?

Yes, you should remove the rootstock growth. It does rob the graft of nutrients and will eventually kill it, if left to grow.
