Question about grafting figs:
What is the best stage of growth , time ,to graft figs ?
Iam good at grafting , buding fruit trees,( Apple pear pawpaw etc. )
But have little experience grafting fig.
I chip budded stawberry verte on to HC. Several weeks ago , these are inside,
Now iam seeing growth on the top ,they where dormant looking when grafted,
Thinking its time to cut back to chip buds, ?
I have various varietys , and lots of potential rootstock , kept at different temperatures,so I guess my question is : do I graft these at ,or just befor an active period of growth, just as I would with other “trees” ?
What temp. Is best for Healing, 70-80 deg.?
What about the latex ? Does this interfere with the union ?

What about putting a wire tie at the union to slowly kill the nurse root ?
That’s a lot of ???s maybe best in another thread. But here it is
