  • BBN airlayer advice needed

    Does anyone have experience growing Bordisott Blanca Negra? I want to airlayer my BBN and I can either keep the graft on the healthy rootstock or airlayer it off the rootstock using the BBN roots. I would prefer BBN roots. Would love your thoughts on if BBN roots are vigorous enough for an airlayer?

    I’ve got a BBN rooted and it’s growing well. Never read anything negative about its vigor.

      Thanks for your input. Sounds like keeping the roots BBN would work.
