Pruning and scionwood in Vista CA


#1

I finally finished pruning and selecting scionwood from my Gold Monukka, Southern Home, and Black Monukka grapes. Glad that’s over! The remaining trees and shrubs will be much easier.


#2

1,000 1"x10" tree strip tags from John Henry Company (http://www.jhc.com) arrived today. I’ll use these to tag the scionwood I’m harvesting.

Here’s a box of about 160 cuttings I’m providing to the San Diego City chapter of CRFG scion exchange tonight.

1/24, 7pm.
Balboa Park, Casa del Prado, Room 101.

Thanks Tony. Hopefully through my example the next generation can produce the same. :slight_smile:


#6

Nice work Richard. This site has a great culture of sharing. You set a good example. I wish there was a scion exchange in TN.


#7

Those peach/nectarine look nicer than I’m used to seeing. I’ve yet to get a successful peach graft on a handful of attempts. Although I’ve successfully grafted European plums to peach stock.


#8

I selected the cuttings for rooting and made them long enough for anyone who wanted to graft portions with less nodes. :slight_smile:

Today I finished pruning the Mid-Pride Peach and Snow Queen Nectarine. Whew! Among the deciduous fruits I only have Jujube and Persimmon left.
