Apple cleft grafting question

greyphase(6A)March 11, 2013

How essential is having a "nurse" limb when cleft grafting an apple tree?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I have never left a nurse limb. I have done about 40 cleft grafts onto wild apple trees and have had about 95% success rate.
