Its that time of year, another tomato grafting thread. Here was last years one I made: Tomato grafting 2021
Last year I got several grafts to work on the DRO141TX rootstock. But I was not paying enough attention during the growing season and the rootstock sprouted a shoot on the biggest plant which eventually took over the whole thing. The rootstock plants still did a lot better than the non-grafted ones in terms of production, and made it to frost still going like gangbusters.
I also finally got some grafting clips to make life a bit easier. I should have bought some right when I started.
This year I remembered to start the rootstocks a bit earlier, I just started the rootstock seeds yesterday and will start the top varieties later. I also am trying Estamino rootstock, I thought it would be interesting to compare and there is not a whole lot of information on what rootstock works for what varieties/conditions/etc. The price is a bit ridiculous but I can get many years out of a packet as I only grow a few tomato plants each year.
