Great idea to stagger the planting and to make your own rootstocks. It is a simple operation if you understand the concept and the process. Both Reed seeds and large Zutano seeds are very good nurse seeds. There are several papers on this web site talking about cloning. Maybe the people at Topa Topa nursery can show you how to produce clonals.
Matan Hadari, an Israeli student just wrote a thesis at the Technion in Israel comparing different planting geometries. From real measurements and simulated ones his model clearly show that high density planting are much more efficient light grazers than any other planting type and thus have the potential for high production.
