This was @chartman 's idea. He started a 2016 Grafting thread last year and it turned into a wonderful thread filled with photos, tips, and discussions of last year's grafting season. Its still a tiny bit early here but some of you have started. I look forward to watching and learning as everyone starts breaking open those refrigerated bags and head into the orchard. A cardboard cookie goes to the first person to post a photo of a graft they have done THIS YEAR!
BTW....remembered the need for this thread because I've been searching grafting threads for a post I can't find....maybe someone can help. I remember seeing- more than once- a suggestion that if you can't dip you whole scion in wax and/or don't wrap the entire graft and scion with parafilm, that one alternative is to spray it with some kind of coating to help prevent it from drying out. That makes some sense to me and while it may not be as good as a full wax coating or parafilm wrap, I would think it would be a lot better than nothing to prevent excessive drying. BUT I CANNOT FIND WHAT THE SPRAY IS!
I know there are some spray-on glues, so that could be what I've seen people talk about? Or perhaps its just the Scotch-Guard protectant that can be used to seal/protect carpet and other fabrics? I cannot imagine using any type of spray-on polyurethane "protectant" would be healthy for tender scion wood so I doubt it is that, but I could be wrong.; Any suggestions? Thank-you.
