Grafting Root Stock
Hey, I'm sure there has to be at least one educated person out there in this Forum category that's a seasoned Jap. Maple grafter. I'm a Bonsai grower and a new enthusiast in the hobby of grafting and looking to give it a try next summer. My question was if when grafting a Japanese Maple you need to use rootstock of another sort of Jap. maple or if I could use a rootstock of a common variety (such as Trident maple)? I ask because I have a ready source of Trident maple seedlings every year that grow everywhere like weeds when the seeds fall in early summer.
