You can get lanolin from Sigma.  Just make sure to heat it to ~ 70 C to 
liquify it before you add your hormone solutions.  There is a protocol in 
Carol Reiss' "Experiments in Plant Physiology" that has worked very well 
for us in the past to demonstrate the effects of auxin and cytokinin in 
apical dominance.
