What do you prefer? I used to use clear LE Cooke 4ml vinyl tape from Womacks Nursery but apparently the manufacturer has been changed and now the tape isn’t as strong as it once was. http://www.lecooke.com/supply-division/miracle-garden-tie.html Now I use 6ml vinyl tape from another source, it is a little stronger but I still like it: http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=23176.0. Some like colored tape but I always use clear as I can see thru it and tell whether the bud is still alive.
Some friends swear by buddy tape but I can’t see paying $30 a roll when I can get the vinyl tape for $3. Some use parafilm but I find it not strong enough for me. I use parafilm for wrapping scions only so they don’t dry out. I also use it to cover stumps for bark grafts, some use grafting wax but I never do.
