Grafting Apple trees


#82

Thanks for the tips. Do you have to stake it? Or Mother Nature will take its course?


#83

Great advice. (But, the rootstock maybe needs to also be considered, and if the tree is staked/supported.) A cane tied to a young tree can help the leader grow more upright.

Happy Sunday All,
This question is in regards to failed grafts :(. Can i use the rootstock from my failed grafts to bench graft next year (late winter)


#85

Yes you can. In fact, that’s what I did this spring.

Absolutely. And they’ll take off and grow some faster than bench grafts, too.
