Thank you all for trading scions with me. Your generosity is appreciated.As the spring grafting comes to the end, I thought it is a good time to conclude result of my spring graft. All done in cleft method.
J Pears :
13/13 success rate is 100%.
Among these 13 grafts, 3 grafts were done in mid April when the temperature was in 60/50 for 3 days.
10 grafts were done on March 3 when temperature was range from mid 40s/mid 30s for 3days
Apricot: 6/10, 60% success rate . Grafted on May 4 when temperature range from mid70s/low60s for 3days.

J.Plum/pluot 18/21 , about 85% success rate. Grafted on May 3 when temperature was in mid 70s for at least 3 days
I think wrap scions with parafilm definitely increased success rate of early grafting. Wrapping scions with aluminum foil definitely increased success rate of late grafting. Some of my grafting failure due to, 1)scion wood not in good quality, this mostly happened in peach scions. 2) take off the aluminum foil too soon, this happened in all late grafting. 3) grafting techniques need to further polish and practice to better line up and the cut grafting surface in the same plane
