I was weeding by mine today and just happened to notice that the rootstock looks dead! So, I've had to do some emergency inarching using a couple of rootstocks I thankfully had left. I'd have like them to have been a bit more substantial but it's all I had.
You can't really see the original rootstock on these photos but the main part of it was definitely dead. I'm hoping there was some other roots attached enough to keep the main part of the tree alive long enough for the new MM106's to take over. Fingers crossed. I don't want to lose my little Spartan.
