Grafting Sweet Cherries

I was lucky enough to receive scion wood for Cashmere sweet cherry today! :grinning::grinning:
I have Mazzard rootstocks coming, and will be putting back up grafts on a couple of established trees.

Now I need some advice.
Are sweet cherries temp. sensitive in the way that peaches are? If so what is the best temp?
I plan on using bark grafts on my older trees, and cleft on the others with back up buds, using Parafilm.

They are not sensitive to temps like peaches or nects. I find them as easy to graft as plums.


Thank you, thats what I hoping to hear.

Personally I like to see the root stock start pushing some green before I graft them. Success for me is high when I do that.
