What is your Tip OF The Day?


I was checking for some info about a knife sharpener and saw this little video.It will probably work in a pinch,if a stone or strop isn’t available.bb


“Do not put off til tomorrow what you can do today!”


Great tip. I’m also guilty especially during our hot summer time.


Posted this tip in the grafting thread also. This is just a reminder to all the grafters , not to touch the cut surface of the scions or rootstocks because oils from your skin prevent the graft from taking. Sometimes i see pictures or videos of someone holding the cut surface and i know the graft will fail.


Thanks for the tip. Graft failure can in many cases be attributed to overlooked handling techniques. If grafting inside I usually wash my hands before starting and also avoid touching the fresh cut.
