Grafting ---- Question and Scion

Sam_123April 5, 2012

Hello all. I am new to this great forum, the nice folks here, and fruit trees. In Update NY (Zone 5). Is this the right time to graft fruit trees?

Looking for Scion Wood for apple (Fuji and Honeycrisp), Asian pears, sweet cherries. Will pay for material and shipping.

You may not get responses. Grafting is done now as leaves emerge. But scions are clipped in dead winter, so I'm not sure many have some lying around refrigerated.

I would go to the yahoo group "North American Scion Exchange" and post your question there. The group has about 75 members just focused on grafting fruit trees, rootstocks, scionwood, etc.

Good luck.
