Grafting timing

Late April, apples have broken bud but not bloomed, can I graft or wait till May after bloom?

Go ahead and graft. As long as the tree is showing signs of life you’ll be fine, especially with apples. (Rule of thumb is when the “leaves are the size of squirrels’ ears”.) Big thing is that the tree is is awake and growing, so able to heal the graft union and feed the scion.


Mark, I would swear that’s how you time corn planting too!! Thank you.
