Grafting thoughts - Crab apple to Frankentree
Just some thoughts on grafting now that I've had time to think about it.
Is it better to graft onto new wood than old wood?
Obviously with new wood, I wouldnt be able to cleft graft at all. It would have to be a saddle graft, whip and tongue or a splice graft.
I've included a picture, red arrows would be the new growth since cutting the tree back, it looks like its building new scaffolds. If this is the case should I renewal cut the old wood after I graft onto the new wood? (Blue zig-zag)
