chip buds about a year later...

So I did this one last July. The growth so far (this is Puget Gold on Tomcot) is pretty impressive. The branch is at least 36 inches long with several shoots coming off of it.

If I keep having success with chip budding, I'll be a happy dude.

This is Superior plum (hybrid) on what I now know is a nectarine seedling (you got me where it came from). Not nearly as impressive as the apricot growth, but still good. About an 18 inch shoot at this point.

How do you keep track of them? I don't see any tags.

yup that is the biggest lie you can ever tell your self(I will remember)hahahaha.I T budded 8 different plum varieties to one tree last week and we had some visitors and so on and I said to myself,"I don't need to tag them now I will remember"..............An hour later I have no idea what was grafted hahaha.
So were these dormant buds (cut and stored in the fridge from previous season)used to chip or were they from the current seasons growth?
That is very cool how there can be such various combinations that work. Who would have thought a nectarine/plum would work! that is just awesome!

They were fresh. I would just grab some from one tree and bud them on the other tree.

I plan on making a tree...using peach seedling, with apricot, pluot, peach, plum... I just wish sweet cherry would take on peach, but I think I'd need some sort of exotic interstem.
