Grafting blue spruce question

gary77788February 4, 2012

Apologies if this question has been asked before but ive searched and cant find it.Im currently trying to graft ornamental blue spruce hoopsii scion to picea abies rootstock using a side graft.I understand that the rootstock plant must not be beheaded low down during this process otherwise it dies.So my question is this.How long after the scion has taken am i supposed to wait before beheading the rootstock?

grating is constantly addressed in the conifer forum.. and i have never seen any of those dudes in the propagation forum .... though i care not where you post ...

look for anything by DAX ... and he will know the answer ...
