I grafted to new rootstocks, most of which I first potted and grafted to after leaves started pushing. Mostly splice & cleft grafts, but also some side grafts on peaches
Apricots: 2/12 - 17%
Peaches/Nectarines: 10/34 - 29%
Cherries: 15/25 - 60%
Plums: 9/11 - 82%
Apples: 39/42 - 93%
Pears: 3/3 - 100%
My previous grafting instruction had been to just wrap graft with parafilm, but the expertise of this forum taught me to wrap with stronger tape. I used electricians tape over parafilm, and noticed higher percentages of takes compared to last year. I also started wrapping scion with parafilm on peaches, apricots, & cherries and some others, but had some buds die after getting hung up in the parafilm. After seeing that I slit parafilm after the buds started waking up, but found that to be dangerous and killed a lot of peaches and cherries when the sudden change in humidity (?) did in the developing bud. After deciding that was a bad technique, I ended up dipping in wax melted in hot water in an insulated mug as suggested on this forum, and that worked really well. Thanks, helpful wise people.
