I found an interesting video on a grafting method that I’d never seen before. It’s sort of a combination of a modified cleft graft and the whip and tongue method. The video is not in English, but you can use English subtitles if you want to. Although with the video’s extensive demonstrations of many grafts, I hardly think it needs any verbal explanation.
Has anyone one used this method, and how would you rate its effectiveness? I think I’m going to give it a try, but I was curious if others had tested this method already.
Does anyone know the name of this grafting method?
My (completely unofficial) name for it is “modified Z” graft (you can look up the Z graft, it’s popular for citrus). I made quite a few of these “modified Z” grafts over a number of years, but stopped because in my experience the take rate is about the same as with simple cleft grafts, but requires more work.
